Brief About The Project: 

This project presents an intervention in two abandoned cemeteries in Beirut, Lebanon, which are among the many abandoned areas that still show marks of Lebanon’s Civil War. It transforms the cemeteries into public spaces that also contain workshops for production and creation. The project links the two cemeteries with other plots in the surrounding urban block, and introduces buildings containing studios, screening areas, galleries, and a theater. The project’s architecture also visually connects it to the cemetery.
