Polypod worked closely with AUB's Neighborhood Initiative to create a photographic journey that takes the viewer over several decades of Ras Beirut and AUB, to commemorate AUB’s 150th Anniversary. Curated by Maria Abunnasr and the AUB Neighborhood Initiative, the exhibition is divided into six sections displayed along Bliss Street's western end, starting with Ras Beirut’s Seafront, moving to Manara, Bliss Street, Hamra, and ending in Ayn Mreiseh. The exhibition is composed of sixty-one panels with multiple themed photographs, mounted along the AUB Bliss Street fence between the Main and Medical gates, engaging the community and activating the urban edge between the campus and the neighborhood.

Congratulations to Polypod
Polypod was announced the winner of two closed competitions by FFA Real Estate for AHLAM Golf & Mountain Village project in Kfardebian, Lebanon; a 1,000sqm Equestrian Complex and a 500sqm Golf Clubhouse. The concept designs were both inspired by the pristine sites; the equestrian complex is seen as a porous pavilion that merges with the landscape and emerges from it, connecting visually and physically to the indoor spatial program and the outdoor areas, while the Golf clubhouse is designed as a viewing platform for the whole golf course and beyond, inspired by the T to Green directions of each hole, the clubhouse fans out to capture the breathtaking views.
