This dazzling collection of homes by Lebanese architects is richly informed by both historical and modern Lebanon, taking into account all factors of life in that country, from the climate and the vernacular architecture, to the troubled past and Beirut’s explosion as a fashionable, modern city. Featuring both urban and rural residences, and even works by trailblazing Lebanese architects in other countries, this book provides and unforgettable glimpse into the traditions, aspirations and influences of Lebanese innovators in the fields of architecture and design.
