We wonder how a permit was given to allow this Optimus Prime
foot building to be built this close to the traditional house right under
it. The picture speaks for itself: the old house’s beauty is forever crushed by a gigantic concrete boot, its chambers drowned in shadow and humidity for its remaining days. but hey, we preserved the old house, right? It’s still standing!
The APLH will be participating in tomorrow’s protest with Save Beirut Heritage to demand once again the voting and implementation of the law to protect traditional streets and buildings.
