Interdesign Building

An example of the exciting energy of the Lebanese modernist school, it deserves to be known by the greater public through preservation and enhancement.

Alessandra Peruzzeto

Khalil Khoury, a prominent architect of the Modern movement in Lebanon, began designing the Interdesign Building alongside his brother Georges in the early 1970s. The project, halted when the Lebanese Civil War broke out, was only resumed and completed in 1997. The bulky gray concrete exterior of the building, topped by angular, boulder-like forms, completely belies its interior— an airy, white multi-level space designed to display objects bathed in soft natural light.
