Housing the Nation

In 2015, X-Architects conducted a research titled Housing the Nation: a Journey into the Evolution of the Emirati House. This research explores the phenomenal transformation of the Emirati private living space; from its vernacular traditions to the modern standard. It is a journey into the ideological, political and cultural forces that shape the form and the aesthetics of our homes.
