In order to, “avoid words that are already overladen with conditions and consequences,” in order to define a, “regularity (an order, correlations, positions and functionings, transformations),” one has to deal with a, “discursive formation.” Reference: Michel Foucault, The Archaeology of Knowledge, trans.

We believe in the inherency of the dimensions of space and place to human societies, specifically in urban contexts that are the milieu of social change, environmental transformation, and cultural production. Our work draws on Beirut’s complex and multi-faceted contemporary urban scene. We are culturally-critical, socially-oriented, and ecologically-aware in discourse and undertaking, and we adopt multidisciplinary approaches and methods in research.
