Monument for the Living is a scale model of the Burj El Murr building in Beirut, Lebanon.
The tower was owned by members of the el-Murr family, a prominent political clan.
Construction began in 1974 but it was left unfinished after the outbreak of civil war.
Originally an office block, it was only ever used as a sniper outpost. The tower is too tall to knock down and too dense to implode, and so continues to dominate the skyline. It is now seen as a memorial to the internal conflict that has never really been resolved.
