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!
villages are defined through by traditional houses, which were the subject of Eddy’s
first photographs from 1994 till today.
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.
