Solidere Annual Report 2012

Foreword

This year's annual report is a two-part chronicle of Solidere's role in rebuilding Beirut's city center over nearly two decades. The Chronicle's first part presents a linear sequence of facts and events spanning eighteen years of reconstruction and development in Beirut city center. The timeline moves chronologically, without analysis or interpretation, portraying a historiography that extends through generations.

The Chronicle's second part presents a photo book that documents the regeneration of Beirut city center over the past twenty years. It is a testimony to the resurgence of the Lebanese capital and reveals a precious archive of urban history.
