Unesco Campus & Ministries
Beirut Lebanon
Master Plan

The UNESCO building and the Ministry of Culture and Higher Education complex were
reconsidered as part of a new master plan proposed to redefine the area into a coherent
architectural ensemble revolving around the building and a central landscaped piazza, adding
other functions into the development. A multipurpose hall was proposed, in addition to a new
building for the Ministry, a National School of Administration (E.N.A.), a University
Rectorate and a new Law School.
