Any participant in the INSPIRELI AWARDS competition can ask a member of the international jury for feedback on his/her competition project. Jurors are assigned across continents at a ratio of one juror per student. The resulting gallery is a unique architecture textbook, created free of charge by those who wish to participate in our project and contribute their work to the education of the up and coming generation. We are honored that you are sharing your designs and experiences here.
it's a very good idea to base your approach on the deconstruction of this place and to use the deconstruvism movement to rebuild this area. This during deconstructivism is much more than a matter of building form. I suggest you to deepen the subject (Deconstruvism) both as a concept and as an arcitectural movement and adopt it for this project
First of all, congratulations on this project with a strong concept that focuses on the history of the port of Beirut. I think your project has great potential. Each of the buildings on your proposal is conceptually strong. The strength of the project is using architectural interventions as a reminder of the past. As such, preserving the silo building as a monument representing the deceased and proposing a bridge to let visitors explore the explosion spot are great ideas. Hence, this makes…

Hi Karl I really like the deep philosophy behind the project as it relates to the history of the redlining issue. Additionally, I can see that it will offer many benefits such as increased housing supply, affordability etc. The design of the units definitely encourages a sense of community and togetherness. I commend you on the choice of method of construction being proposed. It is definitely on the cutting edge of 3d printing technology. It would be interesting to see how far away we are…
Hello Cepreeba, the idea is interesting. You have resolved with a form. Can you give logical reasons with supporting annotations and sketches strengthening the inspiration of the form and its connection to the order and the hierarchy of the spaces in the proposal. What challenges do you think you would face in try to achieve this form. How do you think you will resolve the construction details and integrate technology. Discuss with your tutor these challenges. How can this be built with…
Good start, keep going. Always keep your project reel and simple. Simplicity is the most popular way to achieve a good project. In my opinion simplicity is beauty.
Good afternoon. The concept, in my opinion, is quite well developed and presented. In my opinion, it is worth working out the main panoramic view of the port from above in more detail (image 1), maybe add bright colors or add functional zoning schemes, territorial location in thin lines. You also can add several panoramic images from different viewpoints.
I really appriciate your approach towards desiging a larger site as well as an environmentally challenging site. I would appriciate if you could approach this in the mode of architecture. Other than introducing different spaces as per your design brief , It would be ideal, if you could explain how the spaces connect with each other while reponding to public flow and functions. How you have addressed the natural site and natural flow. You can emphasize the methods of handeling the natural sites…
Dear Nada This is an interesting urban design project! Lot of thought has gone in and the project is detailed to a very satisfactory level. The concept of "Unity" is very appropriate considering the country's situation. The project will contribute a lot to the people of Beirut socially while addressing the political and economic crisis. Your proposal at the master plan level "to divide the 3 sectors to Tourist, Financial & Port around a Central Park" is a very sustainable approach. How ever…
Beirut Seaport Development project delivers interesting insight into important economic activity. The destruction of the existing port has allowed portraying this vital institution with a novel ideology. The attempt of the team to generate ideologically robust design is highly appreciated. You have developed the given scenario into a high-caliber economic hub that targets local and international users. The core of the development proposal has fostered the economy as its core value will sustain…
