Louisiana Museum Exhibition
Arab Contemporary Architecture, Culture and Identity Exhibition: In recent years, the Arab world has been undergoing rapid constant social, cultural, political and architectural transformation. As a respond to that, X-Architects developed a research on the holy city of Mecca in which the extreme identity crisis is captured and represented. LMOMA asked X-Architects to participate in the exhibition in order to shed some critical light on the issue. The research captures the continual pressure of growth that results in constant demolishing of historical city fabrics and archeological sites. The debate remains on what expense and to what extend one should pursue modernity.
