The Lebanese American University, School of Architecture & Design, Department of Architecture and Int. Design invites you to a talk and exhibition for LAU’s Travelling Studio to Berlin which took place in Summer 2010.

Monday May 16, 2011 starting @ 5:00 p.m, Science Auditorium, Byblos campus

The 2010 LAU Travelling Studio took place in Germany’s capital city and one of its 16 states: Berlin. Over 10 days, 28 participants from LAU - including two instructors - followed a packed itinerary designed to immerse them in the outstanding richness of the city’s architectural environments, spanning the academic and professional contexts to the built forms themselves. The focal theme was contemporary architecture. This was explored through exposure to ideas developed in key universities, work produced within major architectural practices, and the buildings and schemes that have come to fruition in the city.
The upcoming Talk and Exhibition will present and put for discussion the findings and ideas that the Studio experienced before, during and after the visit to Berlin.
