As a unique complex in the Middle East recently added on the UNESCO list of World Heritage in Danger, the Rachid Karami International Fair in Tripoli was designed in 1962 by renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. This emblematic 70-hectare site remains a key architectural achievement of 20th-century modernism in the Middle East and a remarkable example of intercontinental cultural collaboration.
