the (non)-dwelling

rachelle saliba

The research aims to investigate the disengagement of Beirut residents from their city, provoking a state of ‘non-dwelling’ in the spaces of Beirut. It examines this state of non-dwelling in relation to emergency, daily rituals, social and economic inequality, and the prevailing urban and building typologies in Beirut. 
To counteract the non-dwelling, the project begins by questioning the relationship between the domestic space and the urban fabric around it.
Is there a way to displace the act of living outside of the private individual space and into the city?
The project proposes dispersing simple catalyst programs across the city fabric to minimize the space that is only private to individuals and promote instead space that many can share.
