Modernity and its Posts in constructing an Arab capital.: Baghdad's urban space and architecture, context and questions

Abstract : This paper raises the question of the connections between modernity and identity in the field of architecture and urban space of Baghdad. Given that to a certain extent "westernization" is generally seen as embedded in "modernization" and even in modernity, I'll attempt to define the ways and the limits within which architecture and urban space in Baghdad have been used by different narratives in affirming a modern "Arab" or "Iraqi" identity.
