Disconnected Spaces: Saida's Historic Seafront

Jul 21 – Aug 11, 2018
Saida, Lebanon
Research Question

In partnership with the Saida Observatory for Social Impact, the workshop will propose a design intervention in the form of shading canopy along the City of Saida’s historical seafront connecting together the dispersed activities along the water while bridging the old city to the sea across the costal boulevard. Students and faculty will be tasked with an exercise that is structured around an analytical urban research period, followed by a collective design period projecting an architectural design solution(s) that responds to the design brief given the site challenges. A future workshop will see the development and physical implementation of the proposed design ideas.
