Inhabited ruins at District//S?

Photo credit: Habib Battah

Blogger Habib Battah has been physically assaulted at the construction site of District//S - mind you Beirut, like Rome is one of those cities where you cannot dig and NOT find ruins. It is interesting that ruins were found under Annahar building and never been spoken of, in addition Hans Curvers and the totality of the Solidere policy has been severely attacked in the past. Still, I retrieved from my archived this page from my book (TRI)ArcheWALLogy taken from the walls of District/SS:
Interesting as the walls say "Architecture is inhabited sculpture - Constantin Brancus"... So that makes ruins uninhabited ones?

Thanks for posting. I have heard about the Nahr Building as well.
