Polypodium invites local and global luminaries to bring people together to discuss ideas and the creative process. The events take place within our informal studio space, which encourages more personal interaction with the speakers. So far the series have involved graphic designers, authors, thought-leaders, product designers, architects, filmmakers, artists, and information designers.

If you have any suggestions for a speaker, or to book a spot for upcoming events, please drop us a note at connect@polypod.com.lb or join the Polypodium Facebook page.

Nabil Gholam
Since its foundation in 1994, nabil gholam architects (ngª), has grown into a multidisciplinary firm with a portfolio that spans a broad range of projects in architecture and urbanism across the Mediterranean and the Middle East. It has attracted attention, winning several competitions and major international awards, and is being featured in numerous publications and books. A European office has been established in Spain a decade ago in order to further expand the team’s diversity and skills while driving its projects abroad.

Nabil Gholam’s grounding in Lebanon’s richly diverse cultural and historical tradition with its tensions and its openness to modernity and the outside world, has further served as a catalyst in the development of his approach to building. In a more and more branded world, ngª not only looks for bespoke simple solutions to complex problems, but also believes into design as a humanistic endeavor to create a real and lasting architecture.
