Mleeta Resistance Tourist Landmark - Lebanon

Architectural Concept

The project belongs to an advanced and modern school of architecture, which faced a challenge regarding the structure of its oblique walls and sloping ceilings.
Because the life of the resistance fighters was simple, but deep with meaning and inspiration, Mleeta landmark was structured in a harmonic and similar way to this life. Hence, its foundations embraced great artistic symbols and significance through the scenic and artistic works that mimic the experience of the Mujahedeen in building and camouflaging the concrete fortifications.
The landmark took its quadrate shape in order to mimic the Muslim's Kiblah, while pointing to four sides: the north and south that represent the journey of the flying birds that seek a warm homeland, the east that points to the sunrise of the resistance and its society, and the west that points to the fading star of the occupation and tyranny.
A large number of engineers, artists, and specialists contributed to building the project. The project's thoughts and ideas were discussed for five years, while its construction took three years, despite the difficult conditions of the climate and nature.

This tourist landmark is run by the Lebanese Association for Tourism & Tradition
