The Lebanese House


01 June - 30 June

10:00 -17:45


The Lebanese House is an installation by the international architecture practice Annabel Karim Kassar (AKK) staged at the V&A. At its heart is a full-size recreation of the façade of a nineteenth-century domestic building in Beirut, Lebanon, which AKK architects has recently restored and conserved. The typical triple-arched window of this late Ottoman Empire home highlights the craft skills used in the creation and preservation of these significant and vulnerable historic buildings. Alongside the façade, a series of films delves deeper into the conservation and restoration process, as well as exploring the physical and social effects of the 2020 explosion in the port of Beirut on the city’s buildings and inhabitants.
