« set up a campus on a deserted territory but of great heritage value »
Oscar Niemeyer’s masterplan distinctively marked Tripoli with grand modernist gesture. The project delineates the human scale within this masterplan by proposing series of interconnected buildings placed onto the fabric of the site. Pockets of exterior spaces between these buildings resemble Mediterranean streets and courtyards; the diversity and flexibility in spatial settings allow the users to creatively collaborate and find serendipity.
