DIASPORA from the Middle East and North Africa Communities Architecture Neighborhoods
Iranians in Los Angeles, Kurds in Nashville, Yemenis in Singapore: this collection of essays, interviews, architectural profiles, urban memories, Q+As, photo essays and travel stories highlights the diverse young and old diaspora communities of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) around the world. Drawing on topics from the 10-year archive of Brownbook magazine—a publication dedicated to covering stories on the contemporary culture of the wider MENA region and its diaspora, including people, architecture and more than 50 cities—the book is driven by the magazine’s expansive research and content. And in light of the recent refugee crisis, it is an urgent testament that migration from the region isn’t something new.
