Typographic Matchmaking in the City: a design research project event in Beirut

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is not a common occurrence in the Middle East to be able to attend international design research events. This long-awaited publication initiated by the Khtt Foundation -based in holland- is one of a kind because it aims to investigate the bilingual presence of type in urban and social spheres. Developed by a multicultural group of interdisciplinary designers and architects, this project attempts to initiate cultural change, assimilation and integration by the simplest form of communication: the written word.

“The book and the design research project, provide concrete observations on differences as well as shared principles between the Latin and Arabic scripts, and on cultural and architectural conventions for the use of typographic design in three-dimensional urban space in different cities and cultural contexts. It raises thoughtful questions and provides useful tools that designers can use in creating new works for interventions in their own cities.”

The Event will be held on April 11 at the Beirut Art Center.
