Zeituneh Square

Beirut, Lebanon

Previous employment – Gustafson Porter

Zeituneh Square uses the site’s existing natural topography to create an informal amphitheatre. Changes in paving colour emphasise changes in levels in the landscape; the geometric paving pattern creates visual interest that can be perceived on the ground and from the surrounding tall buildings.

Jose was responsible for coordinating the design of this public square.
