Construction fever in the Gulf

The small emirates and states located on the Gulf, at the eastern edge of the Saudi Arabian peninsula, are building new cities in the desert at an astonishing rate, from Bahrain to Doha, and south to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Comprised of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain, the UAE is an oil-and-gas-rich region that has experienced an unparalleled architectural boom in recent years. With a dizzying array of ultra-modern towers popping up throughout the area, it's no surprise that the Gulf region has attracted many of the world's most prominent architects, including Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, and Jean Nouvel, who are all designing groundbreaking projects for the ambitious Cultural District project on Saadiyat Island off the coast of Abu Dhabi. With these and many more remarkable, large-scale projects recently built or in progress, the Gulf emirates are perhaps today's top architectural hotspot.

Architects featured: AEDAS, Tadao Ando, Asymptote, Atkins, Behnisch Architects, Frank O. Gehry, Gensler, Zaha Hadid, HOK Sport, Kazuhiro Kojima+Kazuko Akamatsu/C+A, KPF, Greg Lynn Form, Jean Nouvel, OMA/Rem Kohlhaas, ONL, Carlos Ott, I.M.

Cover of Book on 24H Architecture24H Architecture

Binding: 260mm x 235mm, Pages:    124, Illustrations: Full Colour
As a firm founded on the first day of the first month of the new millennium, 24H is a practice dedicated to engaging the technology and sensibility of our contemporary era, along with a commitment to produce architecture that both enriches and invigorates the built environment and its users at the dawn of the twenty-first century.

Still in its infancy, the firm has already been commissioned for projects in The Netherlands, the UK, Sweden and Germany. Although many of its projects are at design stage only, it also has an impressive collection of built work under its belt.

The projects in this book demonstrate how 24H Architecture employs creative solutions that incorporate decoration and an eye for detail, without straying from the authenticity of solutions produced by modern construction technology.
