Beirut Design Week, the city's most extensive platform to promote and connect the local design industry, will kick off Monday with six days of open houses, workshops and lectures.The week will incorporate new technology workshops, a focus on urban design and preservation, and a larger presence of foreign participants than in past years.In past years, participants from abroad included lecturers and workshop instructors; this will be the first year foreign designers are exhibited.Beirut Design Week was created for the benefit of Lebanese designers, but having an international presence, they said, is great for cultural exchange.Although the Tourism Ministry has been supportive of Beirut Design Week since its inaugural year in 2012, this is the first year the event is officially under the ministry's patronage, Karanouh said.
