LEBANON. BEIRUT. SAVE 'THE EGG'




BEIRUT, Dowtown

































 'The Egg'


The Beirut City Center, by Joseph Phillipe Karam, a prominent modernist Lebanese architect of the 60s, is an egg shaped theater / cinema in downtown Beirut.

Its design is a symbol of modern design foresight and a testament to Lebanese talent and architecture.

Now, with the Beirut downtown area renovation and reconstruction, this milestone of Lebanese design is on death-row, making space for the new 600 million dollar Beirut Gate project.
