In the Arabian Peninsula, public spaces are often most used after darkness falls and the temperatures with it. This symposium explores typologies of nocturnal landscapes common in the Peninsula, and similar hot climates. During this interdisciplinary event, we will ask who uses night-time landscapes and public spaces, what activities are peculiar to the night and ultimately, how to design for life after dark?

Hosted by the Harvard Graduate School of Design and Center for Middle Eastern Studies
