Last week, we exhibited the first prototype of an ongoing research focusing on CRAFT,  investigating local materials and craftsmanship processes to create contemporary objects.

the product was LOOP,   an experimentation with the flexible properties of the rattan. Rattan ( khayzaran in Arabic) can gather strength by bending and grouping several stems together.

Last week, students from my studio class – space of flows- visited the Bourj Hammoud waterfront scouting for a host site for their final project- a center for creative entrepreneurship, which will hopefully introduce new demographics and dynamics to the heavy industry landscape, and create new ties to the town’ emerging creative class on the other side of the highway. After an expose of the municipality’s vision for the waterfront by its lead architect, Arpi Mangassarian, we went in a bus/boat ride to explore the waterfront from all angles.
