Addressing the noticeable absence of student activities at the University of Benghazi, Ibrahim Lasafer initiated a non-profit entity known as ARCHAT, a name that blends "architecture" and "chat." This organization endeavors to bridge the gap between architecture students, emerging architects, experienced professionals, and the interested public. Lasafer organized external university lectures and dialogues, concentrating on significant architectural issues, focusing on the post-2011 revolution redevelopment of Libyan cities.
The idea, originating with a small group who believed in his notion, quickly amplified, attracting dozens of active participants. Later, ARCHAT shifted from only facilitating discussions to launching awareness campaigns within the community of Benghazi. Among the events, ARCHAT participated the World Architecture Day 2013 by using projection mapping on a historical wall in Benghazi's old town. The projection outlined a short history of the city, focusing on aspects that were prohibited from discussion during the dictator Gaddafi's reign from 1969 to 2011.
