The city of Beirut has undergone an extensive evolution throughout its history, with different societies leaving their imprint on the fabric of the city, and building upon the proceeding culture to build a new system. We examined the underlying order that binds the fabric of the city together through the historical layers of these cultures and through the historical typology of the urban 'town center'. These historical layers are broken down into their core elements – streets, city blocks, and town squares – which are then overlaid into a singular diagram which represents the culmination of each successive urban fabric into a subconscious unifying order. This form manifests itself as a table, a sculpture, a diagram for the city, the Jungle Protocol.
