Governmental Buildings


Zalka Municipality - Lebanon

Zalka's municipality needed to relocate to a bigger and better building. This design, is a statement unique of its kind, where all Zalka's history  is retraced.

The unique shape of its cultural center reflect the high standards used in the excellent quality of the design.

The simplicity and elegant uniformity of the juxtaposed building create a harmonious link between the two elements, giving each one its own glorious moment.

The municipality is made in memory of what was lost.
Thus the center was designed based on the shape of the lemon and orange trees that were found everywhere.

The square represents man's invasion that squashed that fruit, breaking it in half and spreading its parts, creating gaps between them,  that turned to positive and negative spaces within the library.
