Designer: Bird on a Wire Photographer: Ronald Abdala
'Blueprint Beirut' deconstructs the architectural arcades (qanater) of the traditional Lebanese home to their blueprints. They admit streams of light into the home’s central room, a space where past rituals shape daily life and where eight young designers have found mutual inspiration. Playing with the Utopian co-existence of light and the material world, the exhibition is a re-imagining of familiar space; a reflection of Lebanese fashion’s journey from convention towards a future still grounded in Mediterranean heritage.
