Final Design Team Shortlist Announced for New U.S. Embassy in Beirut

The Department of State's Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) has shortlisted three design teams for the new U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon for Stage 3 evaluation. The project is part of OBO’s Excellence in Diplomatic Facilities initiative in which seeks to provide safe and functional facilities that represent the best in American architecture.

The shortlisted teams are:

  • Diller Scofidio + Renfro
  • Mack Scogin Merrill Elam / AECOM
  • Morphosis Architects

These remaining contenders, selected from six shortlisted firms, will develop presentations on their team organization, design vision, and approach to excellence for the Stage 3 interviews and evaluation.

The new Embassy site is approximately 11 kilometers north of the city center and in close proximity to the existing Embassy.  The new Embassy complex will include a chancery, representational housing, Marine residence, support offices and utility buildings, a parking structure, access pavilions, and a community center.
