This elegant urban garden, on a flatiron footprint terraced with a solemn series of reflecting pools, honours former Lebanese prime minister Rafic Hariri, who was assassinated in 2005. The triangular block sits in the shadow of the Grand Serail, Hariri’s former office, its long slabs of dark grey granite symbolizing the incremental rebuilding of the capital. The mechanical equipment that operates the reflecting pools is hidden beneath manicured lawns, and a row of jacaranda trees frames this simple and serene monument to peace and resiliency.
