Abstract:Cities disfigured by war face not only the scares and memories of such violence among remaining populations, but the urban field itself serves as a constant concretized memory or evidence of atrocity. Urban design strategies are not simply attempts at representing modernity in the post-colonial and post-war city, but rather a highly politicized tool for remaking the city the ground of cultural and national identity production, generating a specific form of modernity. Relying on participant observations and semi-structured interviews, this project aims to understand the affinity between nation and city; identity and place as negotiated through the redevelopment of urban space in post-civil war Beirut city center. Beginning with the premise that the ideologies of urban development and identity formation are mutually constitutive ventures, this project further examines the ways history, memory, and most significantly, national identity are represented through the rebuilt environment. Findings indicate that the city remains a contested space of national identity formation resulting from uneven urban redevelopment that has failed to include all sectors of society and economy. Such development processes have further polarized religious-political communities as they vie for symbolic and material control and access to the benefits of economic urban development. Keywords: National Identity, Cultural Memory, Urban Development, Tourism, Cities after War
