AEC Music Pavilion
Zahlé, Lebanon

Originally, the Tannayel estate belonged to the Society of Jesus, who had itself received it as compensation from the French Government in the 19th century. Today it has become an eco-tourism destination managed by Arc en Ciel, an association advocating for sustainable agriculture in the region. The music pavilion is part of a project to develop recreational activities for the estate’s visitors and is the first of a series of follies, which will promote vernacular building techniques. Open to the elements, the square planned pavilion offers a versatile performance space for artists and onlookers to gather and share a sensorial voyage.
