As part of the Crossing Boundaries Lecture Series, Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar is hosting today a lecture by Saudi Arabian interior designer Sonia Ashour at 6pm. Titled ‘Cultural Identity - Breaking the Boundaries of Cliches,’ the lecture is open to the public. Ashour, the founder and principal of A|G interior design consultants, will illustrate the importance of the Gulf’s vocal tradition in retrieving information needed to develop relevant content. She is also the co-founder of the Department of Interior Design at Dar Al- Hekma, one of the first and leading private colleges for women in Saudi Arabia. In 2001, Ashour founded A|G interior design consultants and has been principal since. Her firm handles high profile sovereign and cultural projects including embassies and residences for ambassadors for the Saudi ministry of foreign affairs and The Unesco Arab Regional Center for World Heritage in Bahrain.
