theOtherDada wins the battle but not yet the war! Fight with us to #SaveDalieh!

NOT JUST ABOUT DALIEH was selected as one of the winning proposals for ‘Revisiting Dalieh’ Competition.

The competition was an open call for architects, landscape architects, planners to articulate creative, sensitive, and environmentally sustainable design proposals for the conservation and future development of Dalieh.

The problem of privatization of public spaces is NOT JUST ABOUT DALIEH but a trend that is happening along the entire Lebanese coast.

Dalieh is a place of many layers that tie back to the network of the city: Archaeology, Fishing Port, Biodiversity, Accessible Space, Nature, Socio-cultural exchange spot

Our spatial configuration builds on the unique landscape of Dalieh by establishing 3 zones to reconnect people to nature:

Protected Zone composed of terrestrial and marine protected areas to preserve and rehabilitate the existing ecosystems, and develop an ecotourism trail.

Informal Zone to preserve and enhance the current socio-cultural exchanges, and maintain Dalieh as a shared-space, open-access zone.

Formal Zone limited to previously disturbed areas with off-grid structures repurposed from existing elements and used as building blocks.

If you want to know more about the project and our proposal do not hesitate in contacting us!
