Beirut River Project

The project is a strategy to enhance the urban corridor of the Beirut River and its watershed proposed by theOtherDada and their partners LCEC and UNHabitat. We started with a study of the river’s status, identified challenges and conditions in the area, and proposed practical and sustainable interventions. Focusing on the community and nature, the project aims to connect the neighborhoods surrounding the river and integrate nature into the urban environment. The human-centered design proposal tackles environmental and social concerns, and engages local stakeholders to find locally adapted solutions. We believe it is necessary to mobilize the community and the local authorities to work toward a self-sufficient and sustainable network that empowers its human and natural resources.

About tOD

Active since 2010, the architecture lab theOtherDada defends an alternative position towards the current practice of sustainability through exploration of the context and medium, invoking new relationships between climate, landscape, and inhabitants. Informed by our research into biomimicry, we aim to connect to the natural ecosystems of sites to understand and consequently devise new potential living habitats. theOtherDada works within a collaborative process between architects, scientists, botanists, artists, economists and craftsmen.
