The unofficial guide to Beirut

Studio Beirut

The destination of this guidebook is Beirut, one of the grand capitals of the Middle East. Beyroutes presents an exploded view of a city which lives so many double lives and figures in so many truths, myths and historical falsifications that for navigating its streets and its corners you need a whole new set of rules of engagement. Visiting the city with this intimate book as your guide makes you feel disoriented, appreicative, judgemental and perhaps eventaully reconciliatory.
