The BORING & INTERESTING sides of this building

At first glance, this might seem as a boring old building in Mar Mkhayel.

The boring side of the building

What do you do to make it more interesting and memorable?

Why, paint on it of course!

The "interesting" side of the building

Now that’s much much better.

    They at least made it a bit pleasant. I prefer this one than those new horrible concrete towers.

    They painted that on the side of the building? That’s..well..rather odd for an apartment building, no?

      Well Dani…the face of Bachir El Gemayel (late Lebanese president) was painted on that side of the building. The painting was on the building for years. So I think they wanted to cover that with something else.

      Check out this awesome shot I found on Deviantart. Look closely and notice the paintings on many buildings in Karm El Zeitoun (Ashrafieh)!
