THE “ALLEYARD”

alexa el khoury

Geitouai is composed of multiple architectural schemes of different eras placed around one of its main and essential feature: The Jesuit Garden which corresponds to the remaining of the green land that used to characterize the place. It is noticeable that the latest part of the place features courtyards between its buildings, while alleyways are obviously present on the oldest built part of the site. Both of those elements have distinctive common features: they allow for a passive ventilation between the buildings, and they are a place for encounter that promotes social interaction between the dwellers and creates a strategic way of circulating within the site.
As a matter of fact, the project would feature outdoor platforms that connect its two systems -a community center and a charity center- and, thus, promotes the characteristics of the alleyways and courtyards.
