Lars Müller Publishers is an internationally active publishing house based in Zurich, Switzerland. It came into being in 1983, as a result of the bibliophile passion of designer Lars Müller. The house has made a worldwide name for itself with carefully edited and designed publications on architecture, design, photography, contemporary art and society. The publishing program documents historical developments and contemporary phenomena by presenting compelling work in the visual arts and the design of objects exploring its social and cultural relevance.
Lars Müller Publishers presents carefully edited and designed publications on architecture, design and photography at the Abu Dhabi Book Fair.
A publication on the transition of Mecca and a cookbook with Syrian mezze recipes are on display as well as a book featuring the work of architect David Adjaye, a publication on the meaning of the urban spaces of the political and a book on the importance of design today.
Saliba presents fifty Syrian mezze recipes – from lamb pita and cucumber yogurt salad to baked aubergine with goat’s cheese. The recipes are developed by Elias Hanna Saliba, one of Germany’s most cutting-edge chefs, and served in his restaurant Saliba in Hamburg. “Eating with the eyes” is to be taken literally. Arabic calligraphy complements the feast for the eyes and makes the book much more than a collection of recipes for amateur cooks and professional chefs.
Desert of Pharan
Ahmed Mater documents the development and the unofficial histories behind the mass expansion of Mecca. Desert of Pharan is a photographic journey displaying Mecca's transformation from unique holy site to urban megacity. Until recently, the place embodied a unique urban tapestry, layered with histories that are stitched together by an abundance of organically rooted communities and cultures. Desert of Pharan charts the site's origins to its more recent history and provides a study of its latest transformation.
