Lebanese Villages and Traditional Houses:
Identities on the Road to Extinction
Speaker: Eddy Choueiry
Language: Arabic supported by English and French

The definition of Lebanese identity is closely linked to the Lebanese village. The village is the matrix. Too bad and unfortunately this civilization is disappearing very quickly!
Our villages are defined through by traditional houses, which were the subject of Eddy’s first photographs from 1994 till today.
This Monday Talk begins with the architectural typology of the traditional. What follows next reveals the Lebanese villages that always preserve their traditional aspect. Eddy will also present the restoration work made by Corpus Levant with the Lebanese architects.
This book is a small museum is which keeps between its pages history, heritage.
