Yemen’s architectural heritage in peril – The MBI Al Jaber Foundation Public Lecture
Yemen possesses one of the world’s finest treasure-troves of architecture, displaying a wondrous array of vernacular styles. Three of its ancient cities – Shibam, Sana and Zabīd – are UNESCO World Heritage sites. In this lecture, Trevor Marchand, SOAS, will take stock of the damage incurred as well as some of the current efforts to safeguard buildings and to sustain conservation programmes.
