UAE's architectural heritage introduced to visitors of Janadriyah Festival in Riyadh

Riyadh:The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has introduced landmarks of its heritage and originality at its pavilion at the 32nd Janadriyah Festival, which have impressed visitors.
"Al-Barajeel" is the one of key architectural landmarks of UAE housing reflecting the old times. It is being displayed to visitors of the festival as it is considered a heritage icon constructed with items produced from the local environment to cope with the reality of life and its conditions.
Linguistically speaking, "Al-Barajeel" is defined as a wind path or air attractor. It is a long and rectangular-shaped tower that looks like an Italian bell tower. It has openings on all sides to catch air coming from all directions. The tower is connected to a room below and, thus, it works as a fan and furnishes the inhabitants of the house with cool air.
"Al-Barajeel" represents a distinctive architectural landmark for UAE residences which is clearly reflected in the old buildings that still exist in Dubai and Sharjah where the population manages to cope with the harsh weather and high temperatures.
"Al-Barajeel" embodies the UAE old building style in its shape and design, and has, at the same time, its distinguished features that makes it different from other buildings in the world. It reflects key and local architecture in the UAE, notably in buildings constructed in the pre-oil era. It is characterized by its architectural simplicity and uniqueness that reflect the arts and civilization of the UAE. Agencies
