Majdi Faleh is a Teaching Assistant at the University of Melbourne, School of Design. His research mainly focuses on Islamic architecture and art and the influences of globalization. A polyglot, architectural designer, researcher, artist, and activist, Dr. Faleh holds a PhD of Architecture and Humanities from
the University of Western Australia and a Master of Architecture from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.
This research stems from a theoretical study of the Medina of Tunis, as a continuity of the author’s doctoral research. The broader study from which the concepts are drawn is part of a PhD project, in architecture and humanities, focused on the effects of globalization on the Medina of Tunis. Studies and publications of the houses of the Medina of Tunis are lacking from the literature, in the Anglo-Saxon world, thus the interest of the author is to build a new body of knowledge examining historical restoration projects in Tunisia.
