A temporary exhibition on water features in Syrian homes is due to open at Warehouse421 in Mina Zayed, Abu Dhabi.
Structures of Impermanence will explore the architectural and cultural significance of water features in Syrian houses during its opening at Warehouse421 between 2-29 November.
Artist Talin Hazbar’s exhibition will “examine how the water feature’s surroundings inform its formal language and, in turn, how factors such as material, shape, and construction inform cultural heritage,” according to a brief outline of the Warehouse421 website.
Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group was commissioned by Salma bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation as lead architects on Abu Dhabi’s cultural project, Warehouse421, several years ago.
The home-grown arts and design centre was one of several projects geared towards boosting the emirate’s creative credentials and nurturing young talent in the region.
It was founded in 2015 and has showcased the work of more than 400 artists and designers to date.
