War damaged City Center Building in Beirut
Beirut, Lebanon - September 26, 2010: Two landmark buildings in Beirut. On the right is the Mohammad Al-Amin Mosque, completed in 2007. On the left is the dilapidated and bullet-scarred City Center Building, sometimes called "the egg" because of its shape. Designed by Lebanese architect Joseph Philippe Karam in the 1960s, it once housed a theater but was heavily damaged during the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990).
