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…

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.
Drawings are presented in a clean and neat manner. Spaces are defined and the typology is easily identifiable. Exploration of design can be more daring and bold. Overall facade appears too rigid. Open walls and larger openings with more natural lighting and greeneries could be introduced.

First, I need to talk about the site analysis of this project. She identifies the development of the port area from 1887 to 1995. it shows how the port area evolved. It's a good approach for this type of project. How the context and environment change through history is crucial for the design process. It will help to imagine the future of the project and how it will evolve with the context. In addition, it would be better if she analyze the development from 1887 to the present day. it will give…
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…
This project is really interesting and futuristic concept of complex transport hub. Those big spheres would be very iconic landmark and also commercial centre and melting pot of next generation. My subjective opininon - the red colour is quite aggresive, this unusual shape is very rare and would be noticeable even with some colours of surrounding enviroment, to blend more with the city even though it has futuristic shape. This station would be an strong intervention to the current structure of…
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…
