Urban Intervention and Technical School Proposal - Quarantina, Beirut

The intention here is to prevent the inhabitants from leaving the area by enhancing their way of living within their environment and by allowing the growth of the region.
A double strategy will be followed in order to respond to the main purpose.

1. Technical School in which four fields are taught: car mechanics, truck mechanics, meat retailing, and recycling field. The fields were determined in view of the surveys and interviews conducted in the neighbourhood.
The message of education allows the project to become more than just a structure.
2. Urban Proposal on few blocks which were left empty due to the modified zoning of the area. The densification allows the growth of the region solving the existing problematic.
 

Project featured in the book "Brilliant Lebanese Architects" 2017.
