Sharjah Architecture Triennial will take place in the Emirate of Sharjah, as the first major platform to invite dialogue on architecture and urbanism in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.
Rooted in the UAE whilst engaged with both regional and international conversations, Sharjah Architecture Triennial will be held in multiple sites across the capital city of Sharjah, over the course of three months. The inaugural edition is planned for Autumn 2019.
Adrian Lahoud commented: “I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to shape the inaugural edition of the Sharjah Architecture Triennial and to find ways of supporting an emerging generation of architects, artists and scholars in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.”
Sharjah Architecture Triennial is founded by Khalid Al Qasimi, Chairman of Sharjah Urban Planning Council, and is set to reframe on-going conversations about the built environment of this diverse region by addressing its social, economic, environmental and cultural context. In the lead-up to its first edition which will take place in November 2019 the Sharjah Architecture Triennial will convene a series of public programmes including talks, conferences and symposia.
