The Architecture 50th Anniversary Celebrations at the American University of Beirut
الجمعة 5 تشرين الأول 2018

The Department of Architecture and Design (ArD) at the Maroun Semaan Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (MSFEA), American University of Beirut (AUB), is celebrating in 2018 an important milestone of 50 graduating classes with a Bachelor of Architecture which started in 1968. A total of 980 Architecture alumni have graduated so far from the department of Architecture and Design: the first graduating class in 1968 included 10 alumni and the one in 2018 included 42. On this landmark occasion, ArD has been organizing a series of events, starting with MUPP-MUD City Debates 2018 entitled “Architecture-as-Urbanism: Agenda for the New Millennium” in April, onto the End-of-Year Exhibition in June, to a Symposium & Exhibition on Friday 5 October 2018. The next event in this series is the Sustainable Design Week 2018 entitled “Crisis as Opportunity,” on 10-12 October. The celebrations will close with a gala dinner at AUB on 29 October

The symposium, scheduled from 2:30-5:30 pm at the AUB OSB Maamari Auditorium, is organized by Professor of Architecture and Urban Design Robert Saliba. It will feature two roundtables entitled “Architecture Itineraries” and “Parallel Itineraries” with presentations by different generations of AUB Architecture alumni

The exhibition, scheduled from 6:00-8:00 pm on the AUB MSFEA Bechtel Terrace, is curated by Mustapha Jundi (BArch ’00) and Abir Eltayeb (BArch ’06) and designed by Ghaith Abi Ghanem and Jad Melki (BArch ’12). Mohamad Nahle (BArch ’18) provided research and design support. The exhibition will also feature two booklets that were produced for the occasion. The Yearbook (1968-2018), edited by Abir Eltayeb and Aram Yeretzian, narrates the history of alumni, faculty, social life, and events in the Architecture program for the past 50 years in a rich timeline format that is punctuated with 16 essays by former and current faculty members and alumni. The Exhibition Catalog, edited by Abir Eltayeb and Mustapha Jundi, documents the collected projects for the exhibition from an interdisciplinary perspective. It features more than 140 projects by 131 alumni across an array of disciplines and media

The branding of the Architecture 50th events, including the symposium & exhibition and the design and layout of the two booklets, was done by Kite Creative s.a.l. under the creative direction of Ahmad Gharbieh and Maya Saikali (ArD-AUB)

The event is free and open to the public
