Meet MEA Awards 2017 category sponsor JT+Partners

With the Middle East Architect Awards coming up on 22 November, to be held at the Ritz Carlton in JBR, Dubai, category sponsor JT+Partners principal Joe Tabet, speaks on the event as an industry benchmark.

Why did you choose to sponsor this year’s award?
Middle East Architect Awards will recognise the best projects and people in the architecture community across the region. JT+Partners is participating as a sponsor for the second year to support and honour this year’s best projects and our peers, as well as the consultants across the region.

What did you think people will gain from attending the event?
Everyone who attends will gain something from it, but the most important thing is to be part of a celebration that acknowledges the architecture community’s best projects and people who moulded the past, execute the present and will create the future of the X, Y, Z dimension.

What are your hopes for this year’s projects?
Architecture is an expression of values that connect the past, present and future as expressed by each era’s vocabulary. I hope this year’s projects respect this connection by communicating memories, respecting values and exploring potentials of every time and place.
