GETTING THE HUMP ABOUT MIDDLE EAST STEREOTYPES

  • Comment
LETTERS

My colleagues and I could barely stop laughing when we saw the images of Dive Architects' building for the British Council in Bahrain (AJ 02.03.06). The building is what it is and the article gives a brief outline of the architectural content and intention of the project.

However, surely someone was just back from a Friday lunch in the local when they put that rather smug camel in the foreground. I don't think I've ever seen a worse stereotypical image of the Middle East. Come back Tony Hart, all is forgiven!
