Dr. Al-Douri To Translate Lethaby's "Architecture, Mysticism and Myth" into Arabic

At the commission of the Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation and Project Kalima (an initiative by the UAE Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sh. Muhammad bin Rashid Al-Maktoum for translation), Dr. Taha Al-Douri is translating William R. Lethaby's seminal work Architecture, Mysticism and Myth (published 1890) into Arabic. The book would be published by Kalima Books.
