    FACULTY OF MUSIC

    "Everything happens as if there were one-to-one oscillations between symmetry, order, rationality, and asymmetry, disorder, irrationality in the reactions between the epochs of civilizations. My own musical research on sounds with continuous variation in relation to time [...] led me to lean towards geometric structures based on straight lines: ruled surfaces" Iannis Xenakis, Greek composer and architect (1922 - 2001) — Published 2006.0816

    Pierre El Khoury is one of the best known of Lebanese architects. His career of over five decades has produced some 200 diverse projects.

    LEBANESE DOMESTIC VERNACULAR

    The vernacular dwelling is the unconscious expression of a people's culture. More than the architecture of secular or religious institutions, houses mirror the needs, desires, and living habits of a time because they are the direct result of the interaction between people and their environment. — Published 2002.0306

    LEGENDARY LIBRARY RESURRECTED

    There are many legends about the destruction of the great library in Alexandria 2000 years ago, but much less historical fact about the building itself has survived. Three libraries may have coexisted in the ancient city, but scant data remains about their location, layout, holdings, organization, administration, or physical structure. — Published 2001.0919

    INTERIOR DESIGN - IDENTITY IN LEBANON

    "My house is practical. I thank you as I thank the railway engineer or a telephone service... but you have not touched my heart. You apply stone, wood and concrete, that is construction... ingenuity is at work.

    But suddenly you have touched my heart, you have done me good, and I am happy... this is beautiful... this is architecture... art enters in." — Published 2001.0328

    REBUILDING CENTRAL BEIRUT

    For five millennia, Beirut, Lebanon has been evolving in response to the diverse cultures of its visitors and its invaders. Embedded in its urban fabric is a tradition of the dominant culture asserting its authority through spatial transformation.

    Now reconstruction is underway in the aftermath of the civil-regional war of 1975-1990, but there is no peace among those debating how reconstruction should proceed. — Published 2000.1220
