The Desert Cities is a series realized by Aglaia Konrad in 2008 focusing on programmed city extensions and architectural development in desert landscapes of Cairo. Konrad`s approach brings up the question whether interactions “between imported models and vernacular elements, constructions and sites, desert and communities, modernity and tradition“(press release) are illusionary or not. All photographs have been published the artist`s-book Desert Cities at jpr ringier.
