USJ Campus de L’Innovation et du Sport in Beirut, Lebanon by 109 architectes

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Article source: 109 architectes

This new campus takes a contextual approach, integrating physically, culturally, and historically with Beirut’s urban tissue.  Conceptually an urban block with sculpted voids, the building’s hollow spaces define six autonomous blocks and construct multiple viewpoints across Beirut, connecting students to their dynamic setting.  The voids also generate a street-level meeting space, which flows fluidly to the top floor in the form of a massive staircase.

Lebanon Waterfront City in Beirut by Oppenheim Architecture+Design

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Lebanon Waterfront City first recognizes its privileged position in the vicinity of Beirut and its essential condition as a place where land and water more than meet, they entwine. It arranges its composition as a smooth transition from the waters of the Mediterranean to the mountainous backdrop all-the-while celebrating the “tamed water” of the marina basin and the graceful vessels that dot it by framing its ever-changing ever-playful composition with a most elegant, superbly appointed promenade.
