IMAGINATION- Cross cultural workshop on Suitable Cultural Institutions

Architecture

IMAGINATION - Cross cultural workshop on Suitable Cultural Institutions - Imagine the synergy between cultural institutions and encouraging civil society.

35 students of architecture accompanied by 8 tutors and 16 lecturers from Beirut, Damascus, London and Copenhagen have spent two weeks together from Sunday 12th of February till Sunday 27th of February, 2012, exploring suitable cultural institution in Beirut and their synergy with civil society.
The main challenge for the student’s explorations became the complex urban structure of the city of Beirut together with the city’s immense privatization which sparked off debates on what actually is a cultural institution and what would be suitable in Beirut?
The IMAGINATION school was structured around a public symposium followed by a student workshop and summarized by an exhibition of the students’ finding at the Crypt, in Monot, Beirut.
IMAGINATION is an informal platform aiming for cross-cultural dialogue between architectural students from various cultural - and learning environments seeking to explore a present challenge in the Middle East. The IMAGINATION schools emphasize process based collaborations across cultures and set out to encourage knowledge sharing within our profession.
The IMAGINATION 2012 School is initiated and organized by Henning Larsen Architects Levant on a non-profit basis in collaboration with LAU, AUB, ALBA and The Royal Academy in Copenhagen. The IMAGINATION school will be followed up by a publication. For further information please contact Anne Marie Galmstrup by email on: AMG@henninglarsen.com<mailto:AMG@henninglarsen.com>
