Free, but booking is essential
From the archeology of the city to the archeology of Nature, Lina Ghotmeh’s lecture will transport us into a built ecological future imbued with memories. Every project is an invitation into a new sensitive realm; revealing a narration drawn into history, memory through a heightened sense of materiality.
