On Thursday 15th , Young Zhang gave a presentation about his previous engagements of work in the Middle East. Students got to have a good impression of the different problems which architects face when planning large scale cities which get to be built and thought at an unprecedented speed. Issues about density, distribution of population across the territory and response to a commercially demanding client came across after the presentation of projects which place traditionally considered utopian ideas of city building into the arena of common practice in the Middle East.
