Forget design, and forget galleries. Forget any sort of preconceived notion of what "design" represents, and you may have a shot at getting through Beirut Design Week. Hidden at an intersection between Pierre Gemayel Highway and Mar Mikhael's Armenia Street sits a parking lot. On any other day, it's like any other concrete patch of Beirut. But this week, the area hosts three installations for the seventh annual Beirut Design Week, which opened Friday at multiple locations around Beirut, including Beit Beirut, under the theme, "Design and the City". The project seeks to intertwine an environmental project with the city's landscape.The third installation, the pop-up Waterscape, is a square pool of water with a group of blue squares nestled inside, a vision for the sort of cheap and accessible water features that the artist wants to see in the city, to bring people together in a public space.
