The School of Architecture and Design, in collaboration with the Department of Urbanism at Lebanese University, the Lebanese Landscape Association and the Arab Center for Architecture, is hosting a conference titled: “The Place That Remains: Recounting the Un-built Territory”.

In line with Freespace, the theme of the upcoming 16th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, the aim of this conference is to reflect on the Places that Remain in the Lebanese territory, un-built spaces, their qualities, their histories and their potential.

Four overlapping themes serve to guide reflections on the Place that Remains:

  • Contemporary landscape transformations: Urban development and rural abandonment
  • Landscape heritage: Cultural values and land management policies
  • Communal lands and public spaces: Reality and expectations of usage and legislative framework
  • Architecture of the ground: The unbuilt within the building lot

Registration starts at 8:00 a.m., followed by an opening ceremony at 9:00 a.m. Click here for the conference program.
