123, Sharjah Architecture Triennial exhibition

Exhibition Design for the inaugural edition of Sharjah Architecture Triennial, ‘Rights of Future Generations’ curated by Adrian Lahoud.

‘Rights of Future Generations' is an invitation to radically rethink fundamental questions about architecture and its power to create and sustain alternative modes of existence. The last decades have seen a massive expansion in rights, yet this expansion has failed to address long-standing challenges around environmental change and inequality.’

Our intervention spanned across three main venues in the city of Sharjah with proposals for a new public square, exhibition layouts, furniture, staged events and music performances.
