About
New Bei-Route : When I think of mobility in Beirut the first thing I can imagine is the chaotic streets hindered by lack of traffic rules, and lack of well-structured public transportation .The people’s physical movements through the streets are slowed down by all sorts of barriers and distractions. Hence, one can’t stop to admire the life around the space, the old Lebanese house around the corner, the backgammon players on the sidewalk .Many plans and solutions for a better urban vision for the city were studied but unfortunately none of them were implemented.

Physical Installation Inspiration

This project allows for the virtual implementation to see these projects fulfilled in the perspective of the pedestrian viewer. This project aims to form new memories for the people of this city and its potentials, living a utopian dream, it creates a new environment where the people feel safe and secure, where they can imagine the possibilities. By keeping the heritage landmarks and inserting public transportation means that up till now remained just a theoretical study and bring it to reality, virtual reality, decreasing the dependence on cars.
