The city of Beyrouth, conserves in its territorial scale, the same morphological order derivate from greek-roman period: the three main tracks, one, along the coast, toward Tripoli and Byblos, the other one toward Damas and Baalbeck and the last one toward Sidone and Tyr.
The grow of the city after the second half of XIX century, generated a building texture from the little centre toward the out skirts, like that of Mediterranean medieval towns.
The project is sited in a southern out skirts area and it is structured on the historical axis that lead to Damas.
The project aims to create a strong metropolitan polarity with a significative presence of green areas, with large open spaces surrounded by the buildings, a remembering of the ancient greek Agorà and roman Forum
