Living under the Crescent Moon – Domestic Culture in the Arab World (eds. Mateo Kries & Alexander von Vegesack; Vitra Design Museum, 2003) is comprehensive exhibition book that demonstrates the diversity of lifestyles and residential architecture found from Morocco to Syria and the Arab Peninsula.
Living under the Crescent Moon demonstrates the diversity of domestic lifestyles to be found from Morocco to Syria and the Arab Peninsula: from the nomadic tents of the Tuareg or Bedouins to Moroccan casbahs; from the grand courtyard houses in cities such as Marrakesh, Damascus or Cairo, to buildings by twentieth-century architects. A series of essays and evocative pictures by leading photographers detail functional and fascinating examples of residential architecture alongside solutions for daily tasks and everyday objects. Contributors include Stefano Bianca, Sébastien Boulay, Mateo Kries, Annegret Nippa, Karin Pütt and Eugen Wirth, as well as photos by Deidi von Schaewen, Bruno Barbey, Thierry Mauger and Pascal & Maria Maréchaux.
