Studio: Harboring Infrastructures

Sandra will teach an architecture studio this fall at the Lebanese American University's School of Architecture entitled: Harboring Infrastructures, transforming multiple waterfront sites on the Lebanese coast to ferry terminals and cultural gateways for their respective cities. The rapid development of the Lebanese Coast over the past several years has driven an increased need for public transport serving this linear region, and for public access to privatized harbors. Three keys sites have been selected in the harbors of major coastal cities: Beirut, Jounieh and Tripoli. The studio’s mission is to design a serie of ferry terminals on the Coast. The proposed terminals will be nodes of a new water transportation network; necessary for commuting efficiently between coastal cities, in addition to becoming cultural infrastructures that relink people to the waterfront.
