The Beirut Blast: Exploring Bottom-Up Approaches to Urban and the Reproduction of Urban Space in Contested Cities
In many ways the experience of spatial violence in Beirut is somewhat of an anomaly both prior to and following the port-explosion, which prompts exploration with regards to the potentials of people-led urban recovery. The research explores the infrastructures of care that developed following the blast looking into different areas including Karantina, Mar Mikhayel, and Medawer as key case studies. The first section of the analysis examines the historical roots of sectarian divides in Beirut and the theme of statelessness. Referring to the works of Lefebvre and Agamben, the research explores spatial practices and the reproduction of space within the scope of conflict in Beirut. The second section of the research entails urban analyses of the aforementioned case studies, raising potential recommendation and discussions to assess and take remedial action following events of such magnitude in contested contents.
