New Large-Scale Mural in Beirut’s Bachoura District
Beautiful new work from artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada featured on designboom.
the mural unfolds on the façade of a dilapidated building in bachoura, a district that was once the front line of the devastating 1975 civil war in lebanon. thanks to the redevelopment masterplan undertaken by the beirut digital district, the area is witnessing a fast-paced and hopeful metamorphosis. the intervention highlights the importance of children’s education and future, especially in societies that have been shadowed by war and conflict.
