Iraq: From the Inside Out

After the American invasion of Iraq, along with a collapse of much of the social order, many of the state norms and regulations governing architecture, heritage sites, and city planning also broke down.

This webinar will feature two Iraqi scholars working on architecture and city planning in Baghdad. They will discuss transformations in the city’s built urban environment and highlight the prospects for solutions that would involve policy makers and the Iraqi society as a whole.

Speaker: Dr. Mohammed Qasim Al Ani, Architecture, Al Nahrain University, Iraq

Speaker: Dr. Saba Al Ali, Architecture, Al Nahrain University, Iraq

Moderator: Dr. Esra Akcan, Architecture, Art, and Planning, Cornell University
