About the talk
Through an open dialogue, Karine Fakhry and Diane Sawaya, founders of FaR Architects, will share their vision of Beirut and how this mutating city, their hometown, influenced their architectural practice.
Departing from the district of Mar Mikhael where they established their first offices in 2005, they will explore their work within this effervescent urban fabric.
Notions of territories, thresholds and limits will fabricate the backbone of their conversation.
