Description

This book collates the projects undertaken by Diar Consult in the UAE, the Gulf region and beyond, from the late 1980s to 2015, from a small private home to an ambitious residential community and an iconic and internationally recognized award-winning twin tower office development. It celebrates a quarter century of work by Samir and Sheila Daoud, a husband and wife team that has established itself as one of the most diversely experienced and accomplished architectural practices in the Gulf region, by offering a uniquely insightful approach to providing professional services to the Arab architectural market. It is an approach rooted in regionalism; the belief that an appropriate architecture can only be created in response to cultural, traditional, historical, climatic and environmental context realised by equally relevant technology and methodology. Samir Daoud spent six years at Makiya Associates before establishing his own firm, moved to the UAE in 1987 and Diar Consult was founded, at a time when the country was still a young state. Sheila joined Samir in 1989.
