This is a building scheduled for demolition in Balad, the downtown area of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, my new hometown. Balad is the “old city”, where the first settlement was built along the port. Balad is the heart of the city because this is where you get to see all of the city’s nationalities, languages, foodstuffs, religions, and cultures converge. But Balad is being “gentrified”. It is a historic hotspot that is slowly decaying, just like this beautiful old housing structure.
