“Open Forum” is a collective initiative and public programme running in parallel to the research presented at the 17th Architecture Exhibition at la Biennale di Venezia.Open Forum is born from a collaboration between Co-Habitat Beirut exhibitors Sandra Frem and Carla Aramouny, Wael El Awar (Curator of the UAE Pavilion) and the GSAPP Collective for Beirut.
Organized around a series of gatherings to reflect, trigger and converse, the forums will look at stages of crisis as fertile grounds that advocate for togetherness and the rethinking of cities through the lens of Beirut.
Three virtual events will anchor the continuous discussion, where participants will be invited to examine the central theme of the Biennale Architettura 2021: How Do We Live Together?

Forum Two
Living Together, Healing Together


Forum Three
The New Social Contract
