Berytech has partnered with Beirut Design Week (BDW) in its 7th edition, themed “Design and the City” in which designers are invited alongside activists, writers, educators, and students to consider design’s transformative role in every aspect of life in the city, from public spaces to the smallest detail in the interior of our homes, offices and places of recreation.
