Pic by @sosohamdan11 Tripoli hors des sentiers battus / Tripoli off the beaten path 1/2 🇫🇷Outre les vieux souks et al-Mina, Tripoli recèle un trésor d’architecture qui s’étend sur pas moins de 70 hectares: la foire internationale de Tripoli. Conçue par l’architecte brésilien de génie Oscar Niemeyer, elle a été édifiée entre 1967 et 1975. C’est un projet qui s'inscrivait dans un plan global d’urbanisation de la ville, lancé par l’ancien président Fouad Chehab pendant la période d’âge d’or du Liban. Le président souhaitait redynamiser les régions libanaises où les inegalités persistaient et placer le Liban comme un acteur économique majeur de la scène régionale. Malheureusement la guerre est passée par là et la foire n’a jamais été achevée ni utilisée. ---------- 🇺🇸Tripoli hides in plain sight a beautiful architectural treasure: the International Fair, conceived by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. It stretches over 70 hectares, and has been built between 1967 and 1975. The whole project was part of a bigger urbanisation plan of the city: then President Fouad Chehab wanted to revitalize Lebanese regions, where inequalities were still going strong. The President also wanted to put Lebanon as a major economic player in the regional scene . Unfortunately, the war that started in 1975 ended the construction of the fair, which has never been used. #Tripoli #Lebanon #Liban #visite #tourisme #tourism #architecture #Niemeyer #OscarNiemeyer #offthebeatentrack
