The Vertical and the Horizontal
This chapter describes the complex interplay between the research methods—the aerial view and the walk—that informed so much of this analysis. It also discusses some of the challenges encountered in the field research, as the complexities of the cultural conditions in Bahrain had added to the complexities of gathering information. As the literature on the urbanism of landscape was so thin for Bahrain, it became clear that the broad range of data needed for this research project could be obtained only from a long-term period of ethnographic fieldwork. The result was a multilayered ethnography based on seemingly disparate interviews and casual encounters, walking, photography, formal analysis of built projects, and some archival research.
