'Khalil Khoury' showcase 
Sursock Museum, December 12th, 2018
 

The performance and installation by Bernard Khoury recounts the fabulous story of an impossible modernity. Described as a modernist and brutalist, Khalil Khoury was one of the first artisans of exposed concrete, leading the Modern Movement in Lebanon. He co-founded, with his brother Georges, an architecture and industrial design studio. Together, they produced works that have left their mark on the country's and the region's architectural landscape. The showcase is part of the 2018 House of Today Design Biennale and is in partnership with Banque Libano-Fran├žaise.

Roundtable Lecture
'Co-Designing with Craftsmen' a roundtable lecture 
Academie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA), December 2014
 
House of Today facilitated a roundtable lecture at ALBA school of design that focused on the opportunities of the luxury industry vis a vis crafts and handmade knowhow. Invited designers; Christian Haas, Valentina Carretta, shared their experience in working with a big panel of manufacturers with various techniques, materials and in different countries. This discussion allowed a better understanding on how they each engage with different production ecosystems; helping bridging the gap between the dynamic of Lebanese designers today and the difficulties perpetuating traditional knowhow in our country.
