Uncommon photobook by the Lebanese-born photojournalist and portraitist Maher Attar, recording the renovation of the old Souk in Doha. The text is by Mohamed Ali Abdullah the architect on the project which won the Aga Khan Architectural Award for 2010; "The revitalisation project, a unique architectural revival of one of the most important heritage sites in Doha, was based on a thorough study of the history of the market and its buildings, and aimed to reverse the dilapidation of the historic structures and remove inappropriate alterations and additions. The architect attempted to rejuvenate the memory of the place: modern buildings were demolished; metal sheeting on roofs was replaced with traditionally built roofs of dangeal wood and bamboo with a binding layer of clay and straw, and traditional strategies to insulate the buildings against extreme heat were re-introduced" (AKAA website). Just 2 copies located of the English language edition on OCLC - BnF and the Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar - alongside 2 copies of the simultaneously issued French edition, BnF and Rhode Island College. This appears to be a variant binding, the standard edition being in black cloth with silver titles, in jacket. N° de ref. de la librería 97440
