Lebanese street artist Jad Khoury decorated the abandoned Murr Tower with sun clothes to transform a ‘memorial of internal conflicts’ into public art.

The famous building is a symbol of the Lebanese Civil War, which began construction in 1974 and remained unfinished. The war began in 1975.

The 40-story building, located in downtown Beirut, remains abandoned.

Khoury told the French lifestyle outlet L’Agenda Culturel that sun clothes added color to the building and provides a paradox to the memories of conflict.

The sun clothes are set to remain on the building until September, the outlet added.
