Walking through a graying dilapidated building directly across the street from a shiny H&M, it is hard to imagine that the abandoned space was once the first mall built in Hamra in the 1970s.The walking tour was organized by the American University of Beirut's Neighborhood Initiative as part of Beirut Design Week's seventh consecutive year, inviting participants to engage with the theme "Design and Nostalgia". While Design Week is taking place across Beirut until July 7, the concept of nostalgia in Hamra and Ras Beirut takes on a particular meaning.Before the Lebanese Civil War, Hamra Street and the surrounding area was considered one of the city's trendiest expanses, attracting Arab elites and tourists from around the world. Later in the day, an installation called "Public Tawleh" was unveiled on Jeanne D'Arc.
