Beirut is constantly recycling itself through time; every few years, we are made to be nostalgic again for another thing lost. This recycling creates layers of memories that persist for as long as they are spoken of. Our project aims at mapping places that have 'died' and memories that only live within us, indulging in the mourning process and romanticizing the mundane in the Hamra area.

The original route can be traced here.
