News: Grimshaw designs mobile pavilion for old Beirut

  • Comment

Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners has been chosen to design a mobile pavilion in the historic heart of pulverised Beirut, Lebanon.

The £10 million, 5000m2 building will include an auditorium and exhibition and conference space. The sloping rubble site in Place de Martyrs is larger than Berlin's Potsdamerplatz, and Grimshaw's design will play a similar role to the German city's info box, a temporary building designed by Schneider + Schumacher.

Grimshaw director Neven Sidor said the pavilion, for developer Solidere, would tell people how the area was being redeveloped, and would be moved to another part of the city once the square was fully developed.

Building work is due to finish in 2001.
