New Year greetings from Atelier Hapsitus

Beirut-based internationally-known architect Nadim Karam and his studio have sent this beautiful greeting, which I must share with everyone. When I interviewed Karam who is also an acclaimed artist, earlier this year at International Design Forum, I asked him why a well-known architect and artist like him wouldn’t want to practice in Europe or other more well-established places.  He said he wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but Beirut because it’s one of the most creatively provocative cities in the world. I suppose he is right.
