16 years of destruction.16 years of reconstruction. Solidere’s Annual Report 2010 occasions a moment of reflection. In its dedication to the lens of a single photographer, City in Layers narrates the history of the Beirut city center through Basilico’s 1991-2011 images, labeled by archive numbers and punctuated by inserts. White terrains echo his introspection, contemplating stillness while capturing urban transformation. Translucent paper overlays text and image. Tissue-wrapped cotton cover suggests layers of city fabric. The report explores a new approach to documenting Solidere’s work in Beirut, a place where history, present and future evolve in unexpected ways.
