Rem Koolhaas and Al Manakh editor Todd Reisz will discuss the implications of the book and OMA’s continuing work in the Gulf region. Al Manakh: Gulf Continued is an essential and comprehensive guide to the cities of the Gulf, produced by AMO, Archis and Pink Tank. A follow-up to the first installment of Al Manakh – made in the very different moment of 2007, this 536-page book of interviews, travelogues, analyses, propositions, infographics and photography explores the growing interconnectedness of the region and the complex impact of the financial crisis.
