i wonder if those big companies working for sama beirut knows that they r constructors and not devastators! i live in a small 50ies building of 6 floors just on the toes of sama beirut , and believe me it smells.... you cannot imagine the amount of trash that flies over our heads, making this respectable neighborhood in a bin state of living...you name it....polystyrene that clogs everywhere and make the roof an endless pool flooding all the building....the cans and left over of all the workers that enjoys the elevation while eating their tunas mostly....and the best is those iron big 10cm nails, the cement pieces, and lastly my poor car that has now chicken pox from cement tatoos that is not going even with extreme polishing.... we r living the armageddon luxury era! yeah we called them many times....they r very skilled and polite answering, but when it comes to action ....nothing is done but disdain.... i personally told them that i dont want compensations, or nice words, i just want them to take into consideration the life that is going down there in hell thanks to them now! i reminded them of their duties....but it seems money have no ears... i feel myself obliged to write this here coz i want to share this other side of the sack of beirut....everybody talks of the destruction of old building....but the real killing is when you insult the people living in those buildings ignoring them. in the end, i salute all the professional engineers , architects and business men.....but in my opinion if they dont start taking into consideration the human factor while building, a holy rule to become in their syndicates, their luxurious ideas will stay fake, unfair and doomed to become freaks of the city....they will be building only rocks, not environement as they pretend.... enough botoxing this society ... lets CARE about everything, about everyone.... for a change...

Beirut's tallest building passes the half way mark
by John Bambridge on Mar 10, 2013

More than half of the 50 storeys of the Sama Beirut, which is located in the Sodeco area of the Lebanese capital’s Achrafieh district, have now been completed.

Upon completion by MAN Enterprise, the tower will be the tallest building in Lebanon at 193m, rising 40m higher than the current tallest Platinum Tower, which was designed by architects Nabil Gholam and Ricardo Bofill and built by the Arabian Construction Company.

"This project will bring Lebanon into the club of high rises,” said Fady Antonios, CEO and chairman of the Board of Antonios Projects, the tower's owner and developer.

“Thanks to its modern, environment-friendly architecture and the advanced green technologies used, the Sama Beirut, which was designed by ERGA group, will be a model for all buildings to come."

A surprising feature of the project given Beirut's dense urban plan is that the tower will occupy 5,200mē of land but with a footprint of only 1,050mē, with almost 80% of the plot set aside for gardens and open space.

Commenting on this point Architect Elie Gebrayel explained: "The aim was to provide a green breathing space around the project instead of creating a multi-building compound that would reduce green space in the city.

The project was announced on August 13, 2009, and is set to open next year.

wind speed

How can we calculate wind speed up to 50 floors? Is glass a stable material?
