Growing Sustainably is a documentary film made during Beirut Design Week 2016. It focuses on four initiatives that took place over the course of that year. Each project represents a certain aspect of sustainability.
- The Beirut Makers, a collective of over a dozen designers and makers, are featured as an example of economic sustainability for the Lebanese design industry.
- TheOtherDada, an architectural studio, represents the importance of environmental sustainability through their Beirut River 2.0 installation.
- The Alonsor project shows the value of design in cultural sustainability, where the aesthetics of African diaspora become a tool for engagement.
- The Beirut Arab University students, along with visiting professor Ana Serrano, look into sustaining heritage with their immersive underground installation that relives the history of Karantina. It was there that KED, a previously abandoned factory since the Lebanese Civil War (197501990), became the first Beirut Design Week Central hub.
Beirut Design Week is produced by MENA Design Research Center, in which Doreen Toutikian serves as Co-Founder and Director.
