Abstract

The Department of Art and Design at Zayed University has instigated a collaborative research project incorporating faculty and student work in cooperation with the archaeological staff at the National Museum of Ras al-Khaimah focused on documenting the vernacular architecture of Ras al-Khaimah. The project is important for a number of reasons, including the massive development now undertaken in the United Arab Emirates and the fact that all our students are female in a still male-dominated society.
