A case study on the concept of public space in Lebanon
Initiated by Studio Beirut, Archis, Partizan Publik, Pearl and the University of Amsterdam - Center for Conflict Studies. An international multidisciplinary team of international and local students and professionals from the fields of architecture, urban development, design, sociology and political science, shall identify, analyze formally and socially, and propose interventions and new programs for the nearly infinite number of derelict or marginal spaces in Beirut. These terrains vagues, at many scales, from kilometers to centimeters, present a potential for territorial reassessment and cultural redefinition that will constitute a body of both research and action.
On the 1st of September on the Pearls in Lebanon event, results will be presented and debated. During Pearls in Lebanon a mixed audience will be brought together for discussion. The platform also gives the opportunity for project presentations of Studio Beirut and its projects to possible Lebanese cooperating partners and investors.
