MK3D - Bench on the Vendome Stairs

Here is a cool street intervention I just learned about.

As a part of Nehna wel Amar wel Jiran event, in Mar Mikhael, starting today and till Saturday, comes this  new project by SH+CZ landscaping architecture: MK3D Vendome.
As they describe it on their Facebook page:
"The intervention involves placing, in the middle of the stairs, on a flight of steps, the most representative element of a public space: a bench. This allows users, certainly the elderly amongst of which, to stop and rest in the shade of a tree. Such a unique layout offers a different perception of this public space, with a better understanding of the topography of the place.
This public bench, in its apparent playfulness, is a reaction to the mounting sterility, privatization and rarity of public spaces in Beirut."

Came to my mind, that I presented my new business venture/ Brand on my other design blog, but not in here, My-I-Love-Beirut-Even-though-I-rant-Blog, so here it is, ladies and gentlemen, my baby brand, joining together my love for design and my addiction to Beirut on a t-shirt or on a timeless bag : Scene | س
