THE GREEN SLIT, A CULTURAL CENTER
emilie el chidiac
The neighborhood of Qobayat in the middle of Beirut, is a neglected space to the community, with barely any life to it. Reviving this walking-friendly neighborhood with a concept of connecting the area with what is already there while making it useful to the local people through their interest and through their negative spaces. From forgotten green areas to a green slit, which will be used as a cultural center to revive the neighborhood through all the potential wasted sustainable areas, making use of the public stairs as one of the main circulations of the project allowing the locals to enjoy the different areas while experiencing their normal neighborhood.
