Alexandra Gomes on urban planning and legacy making in Kuwait

9 December 2019

Alexandra Gomes, LSE Cities Research Officer, delivered a presentation at the LSE Middle East workshop "Heritage and National Identity Construction in the Gulf: Between State-building and Grassroots Initiatives" on 6 December.

Gomes's talk, entitled "Urban Planning and Legacy Making in Kuwait", was based on some of the key outputs from Resource Urbanisms, a two-year research project completed in 2017.

The project examined the multiple aspects of how natural resources, urban form and infrastructure affect each other and adopted a comparative case study approach, looking into divergent city models in Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
