Created as part of the Next Generation Holcim Competition, the project aimed at creating a sustainable environment to solve some of Lebanon’s most prominent issues linked to Electricity, Garbage, and the homeless. Seamlessly unrelated in the formal sense, we aimed at creating an informal layer which dealt with these issues, in parallel with the government, hence solving the deficits. The site we chose was located in Khodor, a slum residential area found in proximity to an industrial zone and the port. Our take was to create a waste to energy incinerator which had 0 emissions, by using the most technologically advanced methodologies available, burning Lebanon’s excess organic wastes, hence creating affordable, clean energy. Our added layer was to create a public space that could be filled with ephemeral activities, to be used by different user groups found on site, namely the children who need a playground to accommodate them, removing them off the streets. Architecturally, the landscape created was the negative space found in between the safe parts of the incinerator that could be accessible to the public, taking the form of the machines as they break from their underground captivity, reaching the surface. This allowed for a logical sequence to take place, creating different layering within the project.
