Visiting Assistant Teaching Professor Ricardo Camacho, along with co-editors Sara Saragoça Soares and Roberto Fabbri, has published “Modern Architecture Kuwait, Vol. 2 Essays, Arguments, Interviews.” The book is from Niggli, an independent specialist Swiss publisher for architecture, design and typography. This second volume is a response to “Modern Architecture Kuwait 1949–1989,” the first systematic analysis of Kuwait’s building production. The new book focuses on the role of individuals and corporations in the process of perceiving, transforming, and building the modern state of Kuwait. The editors of “Modern Architecture Kuwait 1949–1989” selected a diverse group of contributors from both Kuwait and abroad to produce expertly researched and crafted essays and arguments. The second collection expands far beyond the first volume, challenging different narratives while also connecting divergent spheres to offer readers a critical look at a local perspective based on a regional context.
