A city at the crossroads of the East and the West, Lebanon has been experiencing an excitement in all artistic fields since the early 2000s. Design is no exception to this dynamic and is even one of its most important indicators. 

The exhibition Beirut. The times of design will attempt to analyze this specific situation which simultaneously combines economic and architectural reconstruction, social awareness and international development. Design alone symbolizes this desire to take hold of its destiny and its image by proposing objects and forms that are aware of multiple heritages but also deeply rooted in a complex reality. 

In order to grasp the dynamic lines that have allowed design to develop in Lebanon, the exhibition Beirut. The times of design is structured in three parts. The first one on the beginnings of the discipline in Lebanon between the 1950s and 1970s, the second one on the years 2000 to today and finally, a third one dedicated to the Minjara project and its philosophy. 
The exhibition Beirut. The times of design, the first of its kind, will be complemented by the first publication, which also looks at the different aspects of this emerging trend.
