After Dark: Nocturnal Landscapes and Public Spaces in the Arabian …



In the Arabian Peninsula, public areas are typically most utilized after darkness falls, and the temperature level in addition to it. This seminar checks out typologies of nighttime landscapes typical in the Arabian Peninsula and in places with comparable hot environments. Throughout this interdisciplinary occasion, we will ask who utilizes public areas and night-time landscapes, what activities are strange to the night, and, eventually, ways to create for life after dark. Organized by Gareth Doherty, assistant teacher of landscape architecture, and William Granara, director, Harvard University Center for Middle Eastern Studies. Supported by the Aga Khan Program in Islamic Architecture.
