This is the transcribed and edited public lecture by Dr. Salama to the The Bibliotheca Orientalis Attilio Petruccioli, SECA Foundation, the Polo Museum of Trani, Italy, on April 23rd, 2022. In this lecture, Dr. Salama discussed the newly emerging places and networks in the Arabian Peninsula that are rooted in distinctive hub visions and have resulted in globalised urban spaces as nodal points within international networks. The discussion manifests a continuous struggle to absorb modernity and construct identity, while interrogating aspects of the everyday urban environment, legitimising socio-spatial practices, and questions regarding challenges the production of architecture and urbanism.
