Beirut - Lebanon

A collaboration between the Lebanese American University, School of Architecture & Design and the University of Montreal, Faculty of Environmental design

The International Symposium Mobility & Design will cover topics with relevance to the design process, the re-adaptation of an interior and its enhancement. It will also explore teaching and learning methodologies and practices in design. Now more than ever, it is vital to reflect on the cultural, environmental and economic issues related to design and the impact of digital technology in this regard. This will be an opportunity for various stakeholders involved in the creation of architectural environments to share their experiences and examine the possibilities of embracing an approach to design that meets sustainable development criteria. Another general objective of the symposium is to contribute to the promotion and public awareness of the importance of the discipline of design.
