Architecture students from the Design Studio level VII course will be showcasing their end-of-semester projects at weeklong exhibitions on the Beirut and Byblos campuses. The Byblos exhibit will be launched on March 17, in the Rima Hourani Exhibition Room, and the Beirut event on March 18, in the Sheikh Zayed Hall — both at 1:30 p.m.

These are the last in a series of exhibitions held in the past few weeks to feature the works of level III, V and VII students. The events are coordinated by Dr. Maroun Daccache, chair of LAU’s Department of Architecture and Design.

BEIRUT

design-studio-exhibits2010-07-big.jpgThe projects of level V students in Beirut (shown here) and Byblos focused on the relation of architecture and structure. Level III students on both campuses exhibited similar projects in February, but concentrated more on theoretical aspects, while level VII students will be exhibiting works more related to urban design and architectural movements.
