Using Sharjah as its primary field of research, the inaugural edition of Sharjah Architecture Triennial invites members of an emerging generation of architects, urban designers, planners, scholars and artists from across Middle East, North and East Africa, and South and Southeast Asia and their diaspora to respond to the unique challenges and opportunities faced by our generation.
