Design at the Crossroads: The intersection of change and the future



When you reach a juncture, you pause, consider the possibilities and then proceed. In our unique position as an international design conference hosted by an American university in the Middle East, we have many intersections to contemplate. In Qatar and the Arabian Gulf, Bedouin traditions merge with modernity and East and West converge in multicultural cities. Design ideology is also in transition to a twenty-first-century ethos. In this rapidly changing environment, it is essential to consider all paths before forging ahead.
