Jonah Square

Jonah Square is located at the entrance to the coastal town of Jiyeh.we designed the small square to reflect the town's story, that the whale that swallowed Jonah the Prophet ejected him from his stomach on the town's coast, where the ancestors of the population built a shrine to Jonah.
In the center of the square, there is a monument made of concrete in the form of a whale tail, from which a water waterfall descends.
The monument is matched by an olive tree with a base of natural stone inspired by Arabic motifs.
