Beirut RiverLESS at BDW 2018

As part of Beirut Design Week 2018, theOtherDada took part of the “Forum on Cities & Designers” that was co-created by Public Works Studio and Beirut Design Week. The forum took place at Beit Beirut between June 22 & 29, and served as a platform that invited designers engaged with urban issues to critically reflect upon their practices.

During this forum, we chose to showcase Beirut RiverLESS project, by presenting a timeline of Beirut River highlighting the important events and updates it has gone through since 50 BC until today. We also presented a booklet that highlighted our research methodology and interventions on the river, featuring our collaborators who are helping us bring Beirut River back to life.

During BDW 2018 we also had two other interventions that you can read about:

Informed by our research into biomimicry, we aim to connect to the natural ecosystems of sites to understand and consequently devise new potential living habitats. theOtherDada works within a collaborative process between architects, scientists, botanists, artists, economists and craftsmen.
