In a city without stable infrastructure, this train system would allow groups like Hezbollah to quickly connect their headquarters to their frontier territory, the city ports, the financial center, and the airport without moving through potential enemy territory.

    The side effect of this web of train lines is a whole range of new vertical interactions between biya. the new interactions entangle the infrastructure of different biya in the same geographic space. Since bombs are geographically targeted and unprecise, urbanicide bombings in Beirut become less and less feasible the more closely entwined the infrasture of conflicting biya becomes.  In this way, the agency of the Future War is reframed to produce side effects that limit the damage of conflict in Beirut.



    While the conceptual project spans the urban fabric of Beirut, the designed project identifies a site in which vertical entanglements between biya are happening in a dense area. The site is located at a circulatory bottleneck at the south of the city in a Christian neighborhood called Doha Aramoun. Proximity to ports, high ground, the airport, and the mountain pass makes this site militarily strategic,and the convergence of the ocean and mountains reduce the available buildable space, thus increasing the infrastructural density and likelihood of interactions between biya....
