Shoreline Walk in Beirut, Lebanon by Gustafson Porter

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Article source: Gustafson Porter

The ‘Shoreline Walk’ is a sequence of connected spaces which form part of the reconstruction of the Beirut city centre. The area suffered physically and emotionally during the 1975-1991 Civil War. Beirut was once a melting pot of cultures and religions but the war created the ‘Green Line’, a physical barrier between the Christian East and Muslim West. This might have been difficult to erase, however the rebuilding demonstrates the Beirut’s character and resolve.
