Professor Wahbi al-Hariri-Rifai has lived in Saudi Arabia since 1964, and has been actively involved in archeological research and the preservation of historical monuments. He has been concerned at the rapid disappearance of many styles of architecture in the recent building boom, and has, over the last 15 years, tried to document them before they disappear. Hariri was born in Aleppo in 1914. After graduating from the Academia Reale di Belli Arti and the Danti Alighieri Institute in Rome, he returned to Syria and later became inspector-general of historical monuments. In 1948 he went on to study architecture at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and the Louvre in Paris.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a vast, ancient land that presents striking contrasts between a heritage as old as the origins of the Arab people and modern development impressive for its scope and technology. Like other countries in the grip of progress, Saudi Arabia is trying to preserve its traditions while it creates the bases for a secure future. But it is not easy to save vestiges of the past, especially fine old buildings, from being swept away on the tide of development [...] One man who contributed to this effort is Wahbi al-Hariri-Rifai, a Syrian-born architectural historian and artist, who This was made possible through the reproduction of the drawings, full size, in an impressive book, Traditional Architecture in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The volume is a special edition of 2,000 copies only, printed in Florence, Italy, under the personal supervision of the artist himself. Al-Hariri is working on a companion volume, which will focus on the history and substance of traditional Saudi architecture, including drawings, photographs and detailed descriptions of techniques and materials. It is only then, Al-Hariri says, that he will have completed this self-appointed task, as an architect and an artist.

Hariri-Rifai, 70, is a distinguished architect...Hariri-Rifai was born in Syria and was educated as an architect [...] His Beaux-Arts training shows in the enormous skill with which he draws [...] A modern scholar might be content with photographs, especially in areas where mid-afternoon temperatures rise beyond 110 degrees Fahrenheit, but Hariri-Rifai obviously believes that there is something more to be learned--absorbed, really--in the patient exercise of hand and pencil upon a blank sheet of paper. This conviction is our good fortune, for the drawings combine an archeologist's respect for the facts with an artist's sensitivity to the spirit of a place
