CITY OF THE FUTURE

There is likely no other city like Beiruit, which, at the mention of her name, calls forth an image of an almost romantic-bizarre complexity and dynamic. Since 1990, after the civil war years, much in this multi-religion and multi-ethnic city of two million has been torn down and rebuilt. Over time, development and destruction have become likely symbols of the city. A dialectic that belongs to the identity of Beirut.
