During more than seven centuries, the Arabs left a rich and long-lasting legacy in Spain in terms of architecture, science, and philosophy to name a few. In the present, however, we have arrived at a full-circle. Owing to the Middle East’s multicultural outlook and hospitable lifestyle, contemporary Spanish influences crowd the region’s design and architecture.
Also, on November 9th at 9:30 at Actiu’s showroom, we will hold a panel entitled The Spanish Spin. Moderated by Love That Design, three influential Spaniards from the A&D community in the UAE will share their views about contemporary Spanish influences in the Middle East region’s design and architecture:
Juan Roldán, Associate Professor at AUS, Dept. of Architecture and Design.
Mohammed Adib, Chief Design Officer at Dewan Architects + Engineers.
Marta González, Director of Interior Design at Accor Hotels.
Downtown Design (November 9th-12th, Dubai) is the most important trade show of the interior design industry in the Middle East and beyond.
