Beirut art center is hosting an exhibition and workshops dedicated to urbacraft city crafting system. Designed and made in Beirut by Ayssar Arida and Sabine de Maussion, urbacraft is the first construction toy to focus on urbanity and not just on architecture.

The participants of the workshop will start building a neighborhood made of urbacraft elements (“urbs”) and then will focus on the fabrication of personalized “kits” on small machines specially provided by kids genius. These kits, made of wood and foam board, will provide the urban space with public equipment (benches, playground, etc.) to create opportunities of a better common living.
