AIA Middle East in collaboration with UAP Dubai Chapter invites you to this lecture which tackles the changing role of Alexandria with a special focus on the cultural interaction and its implications on the arts and architecture.
Alexandria all through its history and since its foundation by Alexander in 331BC, has been a hub for cultural diversity and interaction in the Mediterranean region.
Alexandrian-ism is the ultimate and most consummate symbol of multiculturalism, pluralism and eclecticism the world has ever produced, perhaps the strength of these values will be lessons for the rest of the world since this city represents a harmonious metropolis of passion, diversity, free thoughts and values of tolerance.
