Zaha Hadid Architects have completed the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut. “In 2006, the competition jury selected ZHA’s proposal to build the new institute. The design significantly reduces the building’s footprint by “floating” much of the IFI’s facilities above the entrance courtyard to preserve the existing landscape integral to the 2002 master-plan, create a new public space for the campus, and establish links from the university’s Central Oval to the Middle Campus and Mediterranean Sea to the north. The 3,000 sq. m. Issam Fares Institute building is defined by the many routes and connections within AUB; interweaving the pathways and views within the campus to create a forum for the exchange of ideas – a centre of interaction and dialogue – at the heart of the university.”
