How can Social Design reshape the city?

The photobook documents an academic exchange between the students and lecturers at Berlin School of Design and Communication and The Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts that took place in September 2019 in Beirut, Lebanon.

During the one-week long workshop, students explored how Social Design practices can reshape the city.

Students and teachers gathered together over 2000 photographs they took themselves.

The designer and Berlin School of Design and Communication student Olena Hryhorieva selected 136 photographs and designed the book with artistic guidance from Communication Design Prof. Christopher Jung.

Three essays by teachers from both schools accompany the photobook, as they allow in-depth exploration of this crosscultural, academic exchange.

The book will be published in Autumn 2020. Stay tuned!
