This book is related to the Abandoned dwellings of Beirut exhibition.

For 150 years, Beirut has experienced successive periods of unbridled growth, war, economic and social crisis and migratory flows. It is against this background – of unceasing populating, destruction, rebuilding, disintegration and recomposition – that Gregory Buchakjian wrote, from 2009 to 2016, on a doctoral thesis on neglected buildings vowed to inevitable demolition, coupled with an artistic approach to the same phenomenon.
