Earthen Architecture Course

Al Ain, United Arab Emirates and Manah, Oman

ALIPH supported the Earthen Architecture Course implemented at the end of 2018 by the Getty Conservation Institute in collaboration with the Department of Culture and Tourism of Abu Dhabi. The 20 participants from North Africa, Levant, Gulf countries and South-West Asia were trained and learned practical methods for the preservation of earthen buildings and archaeological sites. ALIPH's support for this training demonstrates the Foundation's commitment to curb the destruction and disappearance of earthen structures worldwide, including in the Middle East and North Africa.
