Curated by Adrian Lahoud, the inaugural Sharjah Architecture Triennial, titled Rights of Future Generations, looks for surviving conditions of struggle, emancipation, and experimentation from around the world. The bilingual books, designed by Morcos Key, present responses to these conditions from the artists, architects, and theorists that participated in the Triennial. From trade networks in the Indian Ocean, to unstable land ownership in the Ganges Delta, to the interplay of gender norms and interior architecture in Iran’s public housing, the essays help us to imagine possibilities beyond the existing arrangement of things. The book is printed on responsibly forested paper and split into two section: the first holds the text, and the second is a compendium of images.
