Two explosions erupted in the port of Beirut, Lebanon, sending shockwaves across the city and beyond. Lebanese homes, businesses, schools, and complete city blocks were destroyed while thousands of people were injured. The death toll is at 200, 6,000 have been injured and 350,000 lost their homes.
Beirut is a publishing, cultural, touristic, medical and educational center. Unfortunately, many of its established institutions are reeling from a new round of damage. Hospitals, which are already overwhelmed with the rising Covid-19 cases, are now dealing with mass casualties in addition to the hyperinflation, economic crisis, and limited resources.
With our firm belief that the quality of spaces is crucial for the healing process, our aim is to provide healthy, secure, and sustainable environments for multipurpose use and activities. With an action-oriented design methodology and a participatory approach, we survey actual needs and assess how our involvement impacts the community towards sustainable, active, and inclusive development.
We work hand in hand with different humanitarian agencies, NGOs, and local authorities to form innovative and recyclable design solutions for community-based projects.
