A DWELLING FOR A PTSD
Due to the Beirut port explosion, Samah Hadid, who lives 1 km away from the port has suffered immense psychological damage and trauma from this experience. She went through shattered glass, bloodied stairways and severe trauma from her neighborhood and building hallways. Therefore, this dwelling is designed to help Samah face her fears, triggers, and traumas by destigmatizing glass, stairways and hallways through engaging these aggressive elements with daily life activities. Hence, this 5x5x5 dwelling is built in a way where the user inhabits the walls and the stairways through sleeping, working, eating and restroom areas. Also, it is essential that glass becomes accompanied with a working/ relaxing area all while overlooking the sea.
