“Post-Oil City: The History of the City’s Future”

“Post-Oil City: The History of the City’s Future” is a presentation of innovative projects in Asia, Africa, and America that address urgent questions such as how the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy will affect the process of urban planning. By contrasting 11 current projects with 9 from the past, the exhibition aims to show that many of today’s developments have their roots in the urban utopias of mid-20th-century modernism.

The opening event included presentations by two leading scholars from Germany and a roundtable discussion. The exhibition, which ran through 15 December 2017, is sponsored by the German Embassy, the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (IFA), Stuttgart, Germany, the Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah, and the National Council of Culture, Arts and Letters.
