Empowering Fringe Belts To Stop the Sprawl:
Agricultural Camp for Children
The constant growth of Beirut city extends through Tarshish-Zahle road along the north of Beirut river. Yet, this urban sprawl has not reached Beit Mery, which exists on a critical point on this axis, remaining one of the last lungs to Beirut with surviving Green lands. In order to stop this sprawl, a shock should be made on this axis by determining the Plot, a fringe belts data was collected according to topography, agriculture and Zoning. The proposal is an agricultural school camp for children that would preserve the Agricultural lands surrounding the plot and to teach children the importance of agriculture.
