Traditional Architecture of Saudi Arabia

October 10, 1984 – November 7, 1984

Museum: Smithsonian Castle

Location: Associates' Lounge (currently Schermer Hall)

On view are 22 graphite drawings by Syrian architectural historian/artist Professor Wahbi Al-Hariri-Rifai documenting diversity of architectural styles, building materials, and geographic regions in Saudi Arabia today. Professor Al-Hariri-Rifai has lived in Saudi Arabia since 1964 and has been involved with archaeology and the preservation of historical monuments. The drawings, which appeared in a book by the professor, have never been exhibited publicly. They depict the architectural monuments of Saudi Arabia's past and present.
