NEW YORK, NY — MCN Build is honored to sponsor the exhibition “Kahlil Gibran Returns to New York after 100 Years” at the United Nations in New York. The exhibition, held from April 25th to April 28th, commemorates the 100th year anniversary of Gibran’s arrival in New York.
Kahlil Gibran — a renowned poet and artist — was born in Lebanon and migrated to the United States in the early 20th century. His works have inspired millions of people worldwide, and his legacy continues to live on through his writings and art.
For the first time in history, Kahlil Gibran’s life and work will be on exhibit for a short time at the United Nations headquarters. This exhibit came to life through collaboration with the University of Balamand in Lebanon, The National Committee, the Museum of Gibran in Lebanon, The World Lebanese Cultural Union-US Council, and the Permanent Mission of Lebanon.
MCN Build is honored to participate in this milestone event as a company that values cultural diversity and the arts, and the firm aims to raise awareness about the life and legacy of this great artist through its sponsorship.
“We are thrilled to support this exhibit and celebrate the life and work of Kahlil Gibran,” said Rudy Seikly, CEO of MCN Build and the Chris ‘Loops’ Seiklay Foundation. “Gibran’s message of love, hope, and compassion is more relevant than ever, and we are proud to be a part of an event that brings his art and ideas to New York after 100 years!”
The Kahlil Gibran exhibit at the United Nations promises to be a thought-provoking and inspiring event.

Howard University broke ground on the historic Myrtilla Miner Building on the first day of Black History Month.

MCN is honored to have been selected to rehabilitate this 109-year-old building as a part of Howard University’s most immense campus redevelopment project in history. The restored building will house the Howard University School of Education and the Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Sciences, echoing its original use.

The D.C. Department of General Services and the D.C. Department of Parks & Recreation have selected MCN as the construction manager at risk for the Fort Lincoln Campus Improvement Project!
The $39M project includes a new recreation and early childhood education center that will be constructed in the location of the former Thurgood Marshall Elementary School. The new facility will consist of an indoor gymnasium, fitness room, racquetball courts, senior and teen rooms, an elevated walking track, a demonstration kitchen, and an 8,000 SF early childhood education center. The project also involves improvements to the 27-acre park space, such as new playgrounds for all ages, a splash park, outdoor fitness equipment, ADA improvements, lighting upgrades, and sport court upgrades.
The Lubber Run Community Center is a 2022 North American Copper in Architecture (NACIA) Award Winner. The building’s copper system that wraps the north facade was chosen for its ease of maintenance due to its patina over time and its improvement with age. Projects were judged by a panel of industry experts for their copper system design, integration of copper alloys with overall building design, the craftsmanship of installation, and excellence in innovation or restoration.
