Since the 1950s, Beirut and Lebanon have been a veritable laboratory for architectural modernity in the Middle East, calling on the greatest national and international architects. Lebanese institutions and major companies turned to concrete and so-called brutalist forms, playing a full part in the revival of architecture worldwide.

This book presents over thirty exemplary buildings from this period, many of them little-known. Public commissions, such as the emblematic Tripoli International Fair built by Oscar Niemeyer or André Wogenscky's Ministry of Defence, private villas such as those designed by Henri Edde, and Khalil Khoury's Interdesign building all pay tribute to Lebanon's happy history, rooted in modernity and open to the world.
