In the coming AIA ME Talks series, you can expect master architects, designers, innovators, research experts and business leaders sharing their visions, passions and inspirations in taking part in bold conversations in redefining what it means to be an architect in this age.


The first part installment of our 4-part AIA Middle East Talks will be with world renowned architect, urban planner and environmentalist Felino "Jun" Palafox, tackling issues concerning the built-environment as cities develop vertically, with more tall buildings, interconnecting them with mass transit links is necessary to avoid gridlock  and traffic congestion on the ground.


This talk will help the audience understand the importance of planning cities that are well-connected through transportation and designing tall buildings that also meet the ground.
