The United Arab Emirates is often associated with modern marvels such as the Burj Khalifa, but few stop to consider its modern architectural heritage. Fifty years since its founding, the UAE can be seen as a microcosm of architectural practices and styles from around the world, reflecting the country’s diversity of cultures and embrace of innovation. Architects from across the globe have left their mark in all seven emirates, where many of their structures still stand in use today. In this exhibition, architectural photographers, journalists, and curators from across the United States bring new focus to these buildings.

Free, no ticket required.
