Several American University of Beirut students reimagined the city's Adlieh roundabout in a design competition, the winner of which was chosen Monday night at the Charles Hostler Student Center Auditorium.The competition – organized by BLC Bank – challenged AUB landscape design and ecosystem management students to come up with a plan for one of Beirut's most congested eyesores. After the designs were presented, the jury – consisting of BLC Bank executives and landscape and architecture professors – chose the top three contestants. The designs on display were conceptual and the students had toyed with a variety of ideas.One of the braver designs was by second-year students Ghida Kharfeu and Loubna Sasso.The design may have proved too controversial in the end, as the judges opted for a different one, but according to professor Lee Fredrix, a faculty member of the Lebanese American University School of Architecture, this competition taught students about the realities of design work.
