About Competition

In this competition, students from all over the world are invited to rethink the future port of Beirut that will be rebuilt and invested under F.D.B.O.T (Finance, Design, Built, Operate, and transfer); the Port administration and the ministry of public work and transportation need to set their requirements and condition list that would shape the path of the future; hence, the winners of this competition will have the chance to be part of setting the requirements with the Lebanese authorities and therefore part of rebuilding the port.

We hereby invite all students of the world to join us and contribute their work to the renewal of the Beirut port.

Requirements / Eligibility

The best about this project is its immense freedom of expression. There are almost no limits set, only that the crucial transport clusters of the port should be kept unchanged. The port needs to operate appropriately with the minimum exploitation possible of the land, and by doing so, more room for economic and social possibilities for investment can be clutched.
Open to STUDENTS worldwide.

Submission / Key Dates

You have to submit your project until FEB 14, 2022 – registration through our website : https://www.inspireli.com/en/awards/beirut-documents
