An Architectural Love Story

Issam Chemaly  |  Creative and Critical Writings  |  2020  |  Lebanon
Two characters, one of traditional build (T) and the other of modern build (M), live in harmony in an imaginary world. They connect; a relationship burgeons between them, and their physical capacities (architectural components or elements) as well as mental capabilities (genius or spirit of the space) intertwine. At a particular point, the authority expresses a different will, disturbing the prevailing quietness. The project aims to educate the wider public on their ability to sculpt the spaces they live in, and to realize that these spaces sculpt them in turn.
