Choosing to look at Beirut as it stands today: a city riddled with danger, yet ripe with potential. Learning to embrace whatsoever experience that comes to us.
Beirut became our ready-made, be it a street, pavement, theater, etc. Drifting between architecture, design, performances and tales, professional practice and academics. This process led us to discover new potentials in existing conditions. As Paul Arden once said: “The unsafe decision causes you to think and respond in a way you hadn't thought of.” We absorbed all we experienced, whether during the war years or in its aftermath, reacting on the polarized socio/political and economical factors that engulfed the state since then: activists in the city.
