Ali Rahim

As a follow up to Ali Rahim's lecture at the AA last Thursday night, 26 Jan, I'm linking here to Monia's interview with him from last year. The article can be found here at ARCH'IT files.

The work of his practice can be found at Contemporary Achitecture Practice - his Reebok flagship store in Shanghai is amazing - and check out the towers in Dubai.
