Bernard Khoury studied architecture at the Rhode Island school of Design (B.F.A 1990 / B.Arch 1991). He received a Masters in Architectural studies from Harvard University (M.Arch 1993). In 2001, he was awarded by the municipality of Rome the honorable mention of the Borromini prize given to architects under 40 years of age. In 2004, he was awarded the Architecture + Award. He is the co-founder of the Arab Center for Architecture. He was a visiting professor at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne; l'Ecole Speciale d'Architecture in Paris and the American University of Beirut. He has lectured and exhibited his work in prestigious academic institutions in Europe and the U.S including a solo show of his work given by the International Forum for Contemporary Architecture at the Aedes gallery in Berlin (2003) and numerous group shows including YOUprison at the Fondazione Sandretto in Torino (2008) and SPACE at the opening show of the MAXXI museum in Rome (2010). He was the co-curator and architect of the Kingdom of Bahrain's national pavilion at the Venice Biennale's 14th International Architecture Exhibition in 2014. His work has been extensively published by the professional press. Khoury started an independent practice in 1993. Over the past 15 years, his office has developed an international reputation and a significant diverse portfolio of projects both locally and abroad.

DW5 is a Design production facility for developers, architects, planners and designers providing the necessary resources to support the successful development of design projects. The workshop is an open platform for a growing number of collaborators. The company is based in Beirut, Lebanon and has developed an international reputation among professionals by successfully assisting designers and architects on various high profile missions locally and abroad. DW5 is located in a 700-square-meter industrial loft in the Quarantine sector, Beirut, Lebanon. The studio is essentially one large open space free of subdivisions equally shared by all architects. Our teams engage in assisting the production of projects of varying scales, from early planning phase to construction supervision. A wide range of supporting skills underpins the work of the practice, including model making, CAD drawing and visualization, and in-house audio-visual, photographic and printing systems. The main drive of the practice is design excellence and precision, achieved through close collaboration with clients, designers and specialists - from structural and environmental engineers to cost consultants. Management of cost and time is an important priority to us which has resulted in delivering award-winning projects challenged by demanding budgets and schedules.

Drive-by Shooting is a series of short unedited films. These depict construction sites and the route linking them to the workshop of their architect. The trajectory which links the point of departure to the point of arrival serves to weave and confirm the complex relationships linking these projects to their environment. To document his carnal relationship with his context, the architect is propelled by his superbike at extreme speeds, capturing the films using a wide-angle lens camera fixed onto his helmet. The documentation of the sites themselves not only serves to register the various transformations that occur during construction, but also chronicles ephemeral instances in the lives of these buildings and their perpetually changing surroundings.
