STAR strategies + architecture: 2nd prize for the house of arts and culture, beirut, lebanon

‘house of arts and culture’ by STAR

STAR strategies + architecture has won the second prize in the open international competition for the ‘house of arts and culture‘ in beirut, lebanon. the jury decided among more than 400 entries. the award-winning ceremony will be held in april in beirut.    ‘the house of arts and culture (the lebanese-omani centre) will be a space for cultural and artistic production, for exchange and interaction between the largest number of lebanese and especially the youth. it will be an independent space with the aim to contribute to social communication and cultural expansion and to promote creativity in different fields of art and culture. therefore, the house should attract a large number of lebanese every day of the year. its public should be diverse and go beyond the few ‘regulars’ that attend theatre halls, exhibitions or other cultural centres spread in beirut and the country.  to achieve this goal, the house should be a free space of artistic expression with no boundaries. its functions and agenda, multiple but equilibrated, should be open to all kinds of art, including those that encourage interactivity between artists and their public, conferences, workshops, free initiatives…’ tarek mitri – minister of culture – lebanon

the performance hall of the house in beirut demands a large number of possible configurations each of different character and with different requirements. none of the existing theatre models can accommodate such a range of events; therefore, STAR created a new one. they call it ‘the magic box’. the box is magic because it can host hundreds of different event configurations.
