Platform TV architects interview: video interview to Bernard Khoury

 

Bernard Khoury is one of the most interesting architects on the contemporary international scene.
Born and raised in Beirut, the son of a family of modernist architects and designers, he was trained locally and at harvard, then after the painful period of the civil war the lebanese architect opened his studio in the city and in this paradoxical mediterranean laboratory/ workshop gave form to a series of unsettling works of great formal power.
Recently he released his first book “local hero”, a passionate auto-biography and reflection on his work.
We met him several times between Milan and Beirut with fragments of dialogue that look at architecture as if at an area that of necessity needs tender reflection.
