Summary Presents guided tours of the Persian Gulf cities of Manama, Doha and Dubai, with architect, Roueida Ayache. She discusses their architecture, layouts, and personality. Looks also at the unique structures of these cities, which have become icons. Describes features which give the Gulf States their 'particularity and charm', in the co-existence between the traditional and extreme modernness. These cities are constantly challenged by opening up, welcoming, developing and modernising, from the perspectives of both the architecture and impacts on the society therein.
