The house of art simply starts by spatialising its own name to bear the spirit of these traditional Lebanese houses unique to the city. A house that wants to belong, through the spontaneity of its shape, to every citizen of Beirut and beyond. A shape or a line that every child could draw. The house of art is an Open House that reflects the continuous transformation. A place which expresses the passing of time through the seasonal changes of its hanging gardens. A House whose face evolves with the changing events in Beirut. An incubator for activities and for the communication between the various arts it embraces around its public heart. A central open void and a space for the uncertain. A place for varying public.
