Tripoli (hotel in the city; above)
Sabratha, Libya (5-2c b.c.e.)
I chose this particular set of images to showcase the architecture found in Libya. I think that we all to often forget that cities can be beautiful because we get so caught up in how bad the industrial world is for the environment. I think that solutions for those problems need to be found, but I also think that it is okay to be awed by what we can accomplish – what we can build. Especially when those buildings end up lasting for centuries, like the ruins of Sabratha. We can create buildings that endure the test of time. Perhaps that means that we can also find solutions for the environmental issues that plague our world that will, likewise, be able to endure for centuries.
