As space in Beirut is limited, land prices are high. As such, developers buy plots where old, traditional buildings with gardens are located, and replace them with high rise buildings. This is done through 300 excavators that are spread throughout every corner of the city, and that destroy precious buildings that define our heritage. These monsters have become a common sight for Beirutis, as they plough through history, to make way for the future. Beirut 8 aims to address this contradiction, and questions whether there is a future without our past.
