Kingdom of Bahrain
The Bahrain exhibition assesses the remnants of the pan-Arab project, born with modernism in the early 20th century. Colonial ambitions for modernization influenced the modernist project across the Arab world. Attempts to reconcile local customs with the technological innovations of the time began from the 1950s to the '70s. Neoliberal ideals replaced this as the new norm from the 1980s. The exhibition includes 100 buildings to preserve the architectural heritage of the Arab world.
