Public Library The idea of the shape of this library is very simple. The frontal elevation represents the shape of 3 book while they are stacked on top of each other. The lot was surrounded with very simple and flat buildings, thus in order to be in harmony with the surrounding buildings the design should had to be simple. However the interior design is very fluid and dynamic, for instance all the rooms have an oval shapes. Each exterior wall is surrounded with shutters that can be slide to the one side of the room so the amount of the light that penetrates the building is easily controllable. The library is mostly built of curtain walls and a big skylight on the roof to provide natural sunlight.

The B-Wall The goal of this project was to double the density of the residential units in part of a sub-urban area located in the south side of Cambridge, Ontario without demolishing or modifying any existing conditions. The response to this problem was an idea that somehow make it possible for the occupants of the existing houses to continue their daily activities without any interruption with new conditions .

Section A-A’ Cross section

The design of the new units is in a way that we can devide the whole project in two parts. First the units underneath the concrete slab at a level above the ground (about 3m) and the second part is the units that are located above the floor slab. These two parts are not connected to eachother. The units underneath the slab are designed for single occupants and the units above the slab is considered more as a family units. Each four units above the slab, shares a commune space. Thus it is possible for four family of relatives to live together. However all private spaces are accessible only through the units.

Train history Museum In Berlin This is a project of an art gallery related to the trains and train stations located in a park in Berlin. The round shape building is a place for exhibitions and installations which supposed to be installed in a covered area. In the center of the building there is a double hight floor free space. Going up to the third floor there is a ramp corridor inspired by Guggenhiem museum where the art work is hanged to the wall. The third floor is a place for gatherings and maybe a place where the artist gives speech and it has the facilities for catering people. While outside the buildings there are shallow pools in the shape of the train station’s platforms . these pools provide a walking path along the length of them there are dedicated small bridges on top of the pools and free space aside the pools for the sculptures and instillations, that was it creates a forced circulation by the pools which leads to the main building.

The swift Haus is a small prefabricated units, easily transportable. The unit is designed with a careful attention to the sustainable design criteria. Variety of passive strategies help the unit to be self-sustain For instance, different layers of exterior skins help to reduce the amount of the heat transfer, four layers of screens provide control over the amount of sunlight penetration, and finally the efficient use of solar energy to provide hot water and electricity.

Sunlight studies in these diagrams, demonstrate how sunlight is manipulated during hot days in August 21st as an example of a warm day, and how in December 21st the units gains benefits by allowing the sunlight to penetrate the unit and heat the concrete floor slab which works as thermal mass to conserve solar heat for later release.

CATENA BRIDGE The concept of Catena Bridge is to construct a temporary crossing structure that is economical and convenient. By minimizing the introduction of complicated elements and a variety of construction materials, Catena is able to be constructed in nearly all locations in the world to suit the purpose of crossing topography. We chose two particular steel products that are able to have a variety of practical uses - Steel Chains and Steel Wire Mesh. These two elements are not typical structural materials of architecture. Both products have very simple characteristics, but they are able to interlock to one another to create a structure, as well as an aesthetic pattern that will be folded into the surrounding environment. By utilizing a large rock formation the structure is able to anchor itself by ifriction against the earth. A simple slab on grade foundation will be pre-fabricated on site, reducing cost and construction time Tiebacks are necessarily for the bridge structure which will be anchored to this foundation.

Catena Bridge is fundamentally constructed with two elements: Steel Chains and Steel Wire Mesh. They will be collected from snow chains, abandoned wire fences, or factories with machinery such as hoists. Through the process of recycling, these materials can be reused continuously. Some parts of the materials will be damaged, considering they may have been neglected or used for a long period of time so a labour cost on sourcing functional chains and mesh is inevitable. Even so, the damaged materials are still qualified to be melted and recycled into new chains and wire mesh.

Catena Bridge will be operated as a pavilion and crossing structure. During the life span of the bridge any necessary repairs can be easily made with replacement chains and wire mesh. When the bridge is decommissioned the steel materials can be used in their original applications or could be transformed into a sculptural art installation. Since building sites will be possibly near cliffs, steel chains will be used as safety railings, and wire meshes can be formed into gabion baskets to act as retaining wall for the cliffs.
