Environmental Studies and Engineering Library
Closing a spatial gap between the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Engineering, the Mikati Engineering and Science Library and Masri Building for Energy and Environmental Studies sort of emblematizes the crucial significance of connecting the disciplines of architecture with engineering sciences to serve together in promoting the design of buildings that will be climate-responsive, sustainable and ecologically responsible for the ultimate purpose of preserving environmental integrity.  
As a unique educational institution in the Middle-East AUB has been and continues to be on the forefront of creativity and innovation, dedicated to the pursuit of meeting the needs of the present and of the forthcoming (future) exigencies and urgencies.  
The capital urgency of the immediate future is to stop the rapidly growing degradation and adverse changes of global climatic conditions and to save men’s environment.
It is from this perspective that we weigh the importance and usefulness of the current project.
