This year, the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) at the Lebanese American University has organized a three-day Symposium titled “Beirut: the City in Violence”. Students, academics, and professionals are invited to engage with fellow experts and draw on the traces of history in Beirut’s built and unbuilt fabric to consider its reconstruction after waves of political unrest.

The virtual event (on Webex) will feature three keynote speakers, sharing their knowledge of and experience in the city. It will include presentations from eight local universities, highlighting student work from the past year. It will also introduce three firm tours, giving us a closer look at the work being done in Beirut amidst the unfolding crises. Opening and concluding remarks will be shared by AIAS LAU’s chapter President.

It brings us great pleasure to formally invite you to the virtual event which will start on Thursday, 10 June 2021 from 3:00 pm (GMT +3). You can find the registration link and schedule on the AIAS Events calendar here. Please feel free to share this event with your friends and colleagues. If you have any questions, you can reach out to our AIAS LAU Chapter via aiaslau.official@gmail.com We look forward to your presence!
