On May 9th, 2016, the Beirut Municipality cast a shadow. Within this shadow began the Department of Lost Space.

The Department's task is to identify, retrieve and index space that has fallen off of maps, space mapped and yet unseen, space in stock, borrowed, stolen and otherwise misplaced.


Led by a core team of experts in geography, geometry, geology, thermodynamics and divination, the project serves ultimately to foretell possible outcomes of and identify threats to the city. Currently in its first release, the index is being reviewed for circuits intercepted by parasitic activity, infiltrators and subterranean fluids.
