Contemporary Architecture In The Arab States
Renaissance Of A Region
Udo Kultermann (Mcgraw-Hill, 1999)
In open contrast to these manifestations of a modern architecture are the few works by the architect Simone Kosremelli. She studied at the American University in Beirut and at Columbia University in New York and built her own office in Beirut in 1979. In her house in the rocks of Faqra (1993) she expressed an architectural language totally based on the topographic realities and local materials. Completely alien to current modernist fashions, here is an architecture in the making that reflects the identity of the country and has the possibility of developing into a contemporary regional Lebanese architecture.
