STUDIO ON INFRASTRUCTURE & TOURISM

A pedestrian bridge that harvests the winds generated by the vehicles on the highway (Beirut-Airport road) and powers itself and the surroundings
It is also architecturally programmed, with functions relating to the people and tourists coming to Beirut

2010 Mention in L'Orient Le Jour (L'Orient des Campus), Lebanon
2010 Speaker in TALK20|BEIRUT 4th Edition, Lebanon
The talk was about the participation in "In a planet of our own" in Mumbai, India

 

"TALK20 is not a lecture but a gathering, an open forum for the dissemination of ideas in art, architecture and design
Produced in cities around the world, it seeks to spark a conversation across ideological, geographic, and disciplinary boundaries
It is an event that encourages exposure to work being currently done by designers/artists/musicians within Beirut
TALK20 happens in the form of an informal gathering, and begins with a series of short presentations 20 slides per 20 seconds each,
selected and narrated by a hybrid panel of students, educators and professionals working across the design and art fields"
