The age of oil in the Gulf countries has prompted rapid development in the Middle East, and now more than ever, architects working in the region are challenged to think outside of the box to push the limits of project size and pace. Scott Duncan, SOM Director, joins a panel that will address the pace of development in the Middle East. Duncan will discuss the King Abdullah Financial District Conference Center, a 16,000-square-meter building with a project schedule of only 23 months from the start of design to construction completion.
