Demolition of a Buidling led Dangerously – Beirut, Lebanon.

Near the house I live in an old building was being demolished, nothing special here, though it was an old and beautiful building…

The destruction was first conducted by men and then a machine in the last stages. Only the building partially fell on the road adjacent to it… there was zero security, even if the building was sealed ( but not the first day )

Thankfully the road was empty and it was “guarded” by men that prevented cars going in. Still, there were parked cars very close to the demolition zone. Wonder if the municipality knew about this…

Here’s some pictures.

In this picture the walls were not unfolded and the road was completely unsecured,

3 Days Later, the walls were unfolded, but it didn't prevent the spread of the building on the road

  1. It always breaks my heart to see an old building being demolished, feels like another piece of our already diminished history being destroyed, forgotten.
