Congratulations to the BAU Alumnus from the Faculty of Architecture - Design and Built Environment “Rodrigue Maghames”, for the honoring from The Xposure International Festival 2022 in Sharjah – United Arab Emirates, for the photo he captured for a child eagerly reading a book in a landfill near the city Beirut.

The jury had chosen this influential image after it became viral in all over the world and was published in several local and international newspapers and news agencies where the Architect Rodrigue held many TV interviews to talk about it.

The photographed child Hussein’s life was changed and many educational institutes offered him free education to continue his learning as he expressed his love for education despite the difficult living conditions of his family.
