We Wood Beirut
'We wood - Beirut' is an initiative launched by Urban Network in collaboration with MEDS 'Meeting of Design Students' and Shift Social Innovation Hub to make the ultimate usage of wood materials in order to reuse them for the benefit of the local community.
We, at Urban Network, the architects, the designers, and the urban planners, walked through the debris of residential streets devastated by the explosion, and realized the need for urgent action to help our community and the many families whose homes were wrecked. How? By mobilizing as many resources as possible to meet the essential needs of those most affected by this disaster.
