Beirut Underground

The inception of the Beirut Underground Community is the result of a scarcity in Beirut. Certain individuals around the city were unsatisfied with the lack of basic services available to the public, as well as the lack of political stability and excess of corruption. Beirut has long suffered to provide consistent electricity, a suitable minimum wage, decent public transportation, and proper waste management. Across the city, a scattered group of like-minded and inspired individuals from all classes and races united in the face of division to create their version of utopic society. This project is focused on how, and to what extent, can borrowed cultural phenomena agitate and disrupt deeply rooted urban organisms (in this case, the residents of Beirut).
