Sharjah Architecture Triennial will take place in the Emirate of Sharjah, as the first major platform to invite dialogue on architecture and urbanism in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.
Rooted in the UAE whilst engaged with both regional and international conversations, Sharjah Architecture Triennial will be held in multiple sites across the capital city of Sharjah, over the course of three months. The inaugural edition is planned for Autumn 2019.
Founded by Sheikh Khalid Al Qasimi, Chairman of Sharjah Urban Planning Council, Sharjah Architecture Triennial is set to reframe on-going conversations about the built environment of this diverse region and to address its social, economic, environmental and cultural context.
Sharjah Architecture Triennial responds to a need for creating a new space for critical dialogue that includes architectural practitioners, scholars, government bodies, students, and the general public.
