[Public spaces and play areas are rare in our grey and congested neighborhoods. Yet there are many underutilized spaces that can be creatively converted into green and public user-friendly places to inhabit. Working with architects Sandra Rishani and Nada Borgi from [HATCH] architectural studio, discover Beirut through its in-between spaces and urban ecosystems, while learning how to create your own urban pocket.
By using a specially designed toolkit, this workshop will teach you low-cost and sustainable ways to interact with and intervene in your urban surroundings, using horizontal and vertical architecture elements. The kits are made of largely biodegradable and readily available material that changes and mutates over time. You may keep your production and watch it mutate or dissemble and take your kit home with you to play with your neighborhood]
