The Architectural Guide United Arab Emirates presents more than 200 buildings and projects from this still young country which has been catapulted within three generations from austere Bedouin culture into the era of the Burj Khalifa. The authors Hendrik Bohle and Jan Dimog portray all seven emirates in separate chapters, with a particular focus on the glittering Dubai, the sophisticated Abu Dhabi and the cultural capital of Sharjah, imbued with tradition. These not only lead to well-known highlights, but also into remote corners, showing traditional architecture - albeit in short supply - such as fortresses, souks, wind towers and the residential buildings of wealthy merchants. Furthermore, they address efforts to maintain subjects of architectural heritage such as, for example, the Heart of Sharjah project. Excursions into special locations and portraits of architects and artists who constitute important figures within the region paint a vibrant picture of current architecture. A comprehensive glimpse behind the scenes of this dynamic country is afforded by interviews not only with international and local project developers, but also with representative figures from other fields, such as hotel and museum directors, a tour guide and the political affairs advisor from the UAE Embassy in Berlin
