Agora 2014

Taking its theme for 2014 as ‘The Public Space’, curator of the Agora architecture biennale, Youssef Tohme, recorded a series of films capturing the public experience in six cities. “The public space is a valuable field for the transformation of everyday life. Because it is the space of possibilities, it has the power to draw us out of ourselves. Its value depends on its potential for experience and adventure.” Experience these cities through the eyes of Youssef.
