The Architecture of Prosthetics
Tackling Beirut city as an experimental platform to create living solutions with affordable prices.
The above is one of the problems this studio tackles.
However, the proposed solution solves another problem, and that is the destruction of the historical buildings in Gemmayze. The replacement of those buildings is a commercial occupation of the exploitation limit of the area. Hence, this studio transfers the unused meter squares, that are offered by the new rules and regulations (Exploitation limit) of the area (after 1960) To an affordable zone such as Burj Hammoud.
