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.
