Registration: May 21, 2022
Language: English
Location: Beirut, Lebanon
Prizes: Please see details below
Type: Open Idea concept


The competition is to propose the International train station for Beirut

Beirut and Lebanon in the XXI century do not have neither Trains, nor metro/Tube. Yet historically trains were operational from the late IXX century till the early seventies. They reappeared for a short period in the early nineties over shorter lines, and that was it. The allocated spaces for the railways and the stations are there. For the past 30 years there was never any official or serious plan to re-install trains in Lebanon. The proposal should fit within the various terms of Green, sustainable, low energy, zero energy or nearly zero energy buildings, bio-climatic Project.

That’s why Dar[e] is proposing this train station, more so it is an International train station. We want to dream, and we want to dream big. We want to be connected to the world.
