As part of our 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale coverage we present the proposal for the Lebanon Pavilion. Below, the participants describe their contribution in their own words. Lebanon is participating for the first time at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia under the theme "The Place that Remains." The project has been developed by the curator, Hala Younes, Assistant Professor of Architecture at the Lebanese American University (LAU). The exhibition aims to shed light on the unbuilt land, its cultural characteristics and its prospects in improving the built environment and its living conditions, as well as the architect's social and cultural role. She added: The Purpose of the exhibition is to spread knowledge and awareness about the territorial challenges in Lebanese society because our heritage is not only architectural but lies also in geography and landscape.
