Irani Oxy Engineering Complex (IOEC) at AUB by Nabil Gholam Architects

Type:Educational
Client:American University of Beirut
Built up Area: 16 000 sqm

2012 Green GOOD DESIGNtm - Green Urban Planning / Landscape Architecture category.
1st prize winner for the international limited design competition
1st project in Lebanon registered for LEED-NC Certification

This cutting-edge research complex is the first major construction within the new strategy for the regeneration of the university’s Engineering District. The project’s objective is to invert the tendency of perceiving the district as the backyard of the lower campus and transform it into an ideal setting for the development of future architects, designers and engineers. The required attitude is to create a setting conductive to learning-by-example; a well designed, well thought, and well executed construction, in tune with the ambitions of the American University at large in providing high excellence in education. The IOEC establishes an exemplary model that will not only trigger but also guide future development in the vicinity at large.
