Climate change is increasingly noticeable and global warming poses major challenges for our cities. The exhibition "Hot Cities" focuses on the metropolises of the Arabic-speaking world: How do these cities and their inhabitants deal with the extreme climate of the region? What can we learn from solutions in architecture and urban planning there to make our built environment more climate resilient? The show demonstrates how combining vernacular traditions with modern technologies can offer solutions to pressing problems of the future. It presents case studies of urban building projects that provide answers to many of the questions that climate change is now raising.
