Ahmed Al-Ali looked at the Holy City of Makkah as a model for 21st century holy/ sacred city and the unique challenges and solutions that other cities can learn from. Mecca, however, has to consistently evolve its urban planning that can provide a seamless run to the World’s biggest event.

“Obtaining Holiness: Challenges in Modernising Makkah” took place on Saturday 7th November 2015 at The Fridge, Al Serkal Avenue
