Here to There

Finalist 2018
Here to There

“Here to There” was a year-long final-year project at the American University of Beirut that started with an in-depth research paper and culminated in a design project.

The research evolved around understanding and studying the current situation of the Public Transportation Sector in Lebanon, specifically the Public Bus System. Through observation, the bus system in Lebanon could be described as unmaintained and underdeveloped but still depended on by certain social classes.
