Archis: Beyroutes Guide Project

Archis.org - Invitation To: Beyroutes Guide Project

2nd Workshop
Beirut, Lebanon, 1 – 8 February 2009

BEIRUT: Walk its streets, visit its hip quarters, check the destroyed but completely resurrected city centre, talk to the armed soldiers at the street corners, listen to the old and not-so-old war stories from the cab driver, explore its old, new and upcoming neighborhoods. Only a few cities in the world offer so many layers of hidden meaning as Beirut does. In the public realm of this town there seems to be merely suggestion, projection and differences of opinion that somehow interact with peoples daily movements and actions.

Participate in the BEYROUTES guide project organized by Studio Beirut, Partizan Publik, Pearl and Archis. A project that enables you to go beyond an exotic visit to the people, buildings and places of Beirut, and to get engaged: in its past, present and future.To produce a guide that provokes to construct your own anecdotes, actions and architecture of the city.

Do you want to contribute in writing, drawing, research, photography or design:
