We are experiencing an error, please try again. Today in Lebanon there are at least ten buildings that can be classified as palaces, including the Beiteddine PalaceGrand Serail one of the biggest in the worldBaabda PalaceSursock Museumand Fakhreddine Palace. Klinenberg's observations are effortlessly discursive and always cogent, whether covering the ways playgrounds instill youth with civic values or a Chicago architect's plans to transform a police station into a community center.

      These are places where people gather and linger, making friends across group lines and strengthening the entire community. Klinenberg calls this the 'social infrastructure': When it is strong, neighborhoods flourish; when it is neglected, as it has been in recent years, families and individuals must fend for themselves. We were there because of Rebuild By Design, a federal competition to stimulate innovative ideas for rebuilding cities and communities to meet 21st-century problems, including climate change. Near the end of our walk, one of the design teams approached me with an idea: every community needs a reliable gathering place.

To create good places for people is essential, and this is what I share with Klinenberg: We both believe that beauty, this kind of beauty, can save the world. The Royal Palace was originally at Dattaraya square and was later moved to Durbar square.
