Team project with Aline Haddad, Mayssa Jallad, Karoline Liedte

Beirut is a city, which got over a long term of war and still has its clues. Within the context of this work, five different regions of the city have been operated. My team worked at Normandy region. Normandy represented the filler area of the city. It was an artificial district, which had been made by filled up sea on the coast. On this district, Beirut’s future projects are developing, construction proceeds all the time; however, the signs of the past are still visible. St. George Hotel was starting the private marina part. We did the first intervention to St. George Hotel, and made inside of it public by opening its walls. Thus coastline could continue uninterruptedly.
