Brief About The Project: 

The Byblos House of Arts is a place for cultural exchange. The project is established on a site of great complexity, connecting ancient Byblos and Jbeil, where one can sense the historical layers of the city and perceive them in various ways.

The House of Arts forms a node connecting the present city with its ancient history. It aims at taking one on a journey of experiencing the richness of the site, not in a conventional sense, but rather in a new way, creating a place that is part of the evolution of the site.
