Beirut’s location and environmental condition sets it in the zone that will rise between 10 to 20mm/year in the best case scenario. To start understanding this rise and the effects a look at Beirut’s topography is required and then the effects in the next millennium or two of the rise of the Mediterranean on Beirut. The results are shocking and yet we remain unaware of them. What can we do and how can we build and plan our cities for the centuries to come?
A wake up call from Beirut the Fantastic to architects, the government, policy-makers, planners and engineers and the general public.
Beirut was destroyed and rebuilt seven times, this is peanuts.
You are talking about a Millennium or 2, i think that we should care for the moment to call for having a proper electricity service, a decent internet speed at a good price, proper infrastructure (specially on the level of water treatment) before calling architects to care building a city that can resist against something that will happen withing 1000 Year 🙂
Choura2yak in what i said? 😉
Have a good Day …
It happened before… It can happen now…
We need an earthquake and tsunami alert system and proper emergency plans ASAP
I thought of my own emergency plan just in case since I work too close to shore:)
