Notes "Proceedings of CSAAR 2007 Conference, held at the National School of Architecture and Urbanism, Tunis, Tunisia, 13-15 November 2007" -- Verso t.p.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary "While globalization has been accepted in several parts of the world as historical fact, the issue of cultural identity in architecture remains crucial in other parts of the world.... Thus the impact of globalization on architecture and the built environment in general is by no means a simple one and must be studied from different angles. CSAAR 2007 conference addresses regional architecture and identity in the built environment in the context of globalization. The conference focuses on the increasing contradictions between the "modernization" of regions on the one hand and the cultural identity of these places on the other."--P. vii.
