Dean, College of Architecture, Art and Design at the American University of Sharjah

Foreword This year, the College of Architecture, Art and Design (CAAD) at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) is putting on the sixth edition of Six Degrees: an exhibition of work by students graduating from the six degree programs offered by CAAD. This catalog complements the show and serves as a permanent record. Each student featured in here has chosen the work to be included and this selection has been vetted by a member of the faculty. This year’s catalog also identifies the best contribution from each program as selected by the faculty. I am tempted to use the analogy of a butterfly emerging from its cocoon to describe the contents of this catalog but that analogy does not capture the tremendous effort this transformation has required. Students entering CAAD must adapt to ways of learning and thinking that are radically different from what they have experienced before. They then acquire knowledge, skills, and sensibilities and hone these through application and critical feedback. We must acknowledge the time and energy invested by those who have taught these students. My faculty colleagues engage in extended conversations with students about their intentions and

how these intentions are manifested. The best of them relentlessly challenge, inspire, and push their students. These interactions leave a lasting impression and we must recognize and honor this contribution. This year, two long-standing faculty colleagues—Professors Paul Bantey and David Hewitt—are departing. They leave behind a legacy of dedication to quality and a strong belief in craft. This catalog is dedicated to their contributions. My thanks to all who played a role in putting this catalog and exhibition together. Six faculty colleagues—Daniel Chavez, Beatriz Itzel Cruz Megchun, Zlatan Filipovic, Cristiano Luchetti, Rafael Pizarro, and Clément Vincent—have coordinated and vetted submissions in each of their programs. This year, for the first time, the CAAD Student Board has taken on an active role in planning for and organizing the show. Several members of the CAAD staff have provided valuable support. It is a matter of great pride that CAAD has produced another cohort of design leaders. Congratulations to our graduating students and I look forward to hearing of your successes in the future.

The best of them relentlessly challenge, inspire, and push...

Mitigating UAE’s Ecological Footprint: A Survey of Citizen Initiatives

The world’s cities, home to most of the world’s population, are exerting enormous pressure on the world’s natural resources due to the consumption or use of resources by people. Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, is a prime example of such cities due to its rapid pace of economic growth. Resource use is captured by the concept of ‘ecological footprint,’ (EF), which is the aggregate of individual use of the natural resource capital of society to support life and living. Since the 1970s, humanity had triggered an ecological overshoot. The capacity of the earth’s renewable and non-renewable resources can hardly cope with the rate of consumption of the resources by people. The consequences of this situation appear in resources constraints, more people bidding for fewer resources, climate change, biodiversity destruction, etc. This research contends that, besides and/or in addition to government initiatives, that there is a responsibility on individuals to take concrete actions that help to protect the very resources that supports human life and activities. Exploring specific measures that the residents of Dubai, one of the world’s most prolific users of natural resources, take to reduce or minimize their EF, is the focus of this research. Information about residents’ actions or non-actions will help the government to plan more effectively to engage residents in its sustainability initiatives.

Social Impacts of Suburban Bedroom Communities: The Case of Dubai Silicon Oasis

After World War II, modernism quickened the pace of urbanization, and large cities became more centralized and unaffordable with time. One of the results of these trends is the emergence of the suburbanization phenomenon and, by implication, suburban communities. Suburban communities, also known as bedroom communities, have become very popular all over the world for various reasons that will be reviewed in this research. Studies have shown that these communities impact people and societies in various ways. This research is interested in the social dimension of these impacts on the residents of a suburban community known as Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) in the emirate of Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Dubai is a world city where suburban communities have become a fad in the residential real estate development sector. Taking DSO, one of the most renowned bedroom communities in Dubai, as a case study, the research aims to answer one main question. What do the residents of DSO consider to be the impacts of their bedroom community on their social lives and activities? The research uses the questionnaire survey and interview techniques to get randomly selected residents of DSO to answer this question. The research also uses desktop research for secondary information

to review scholarly discussions and case studies of bedroom communities in the planning and development field. Part of the rationale and significance of this research is to provide scholarly insights into the social impacts of bedroom communities in a world city where, as this research contends, social capital formation and opportunities lag behind physical and economic capital formation and opportunities. The research will conclude by suggesting to developers, municipal policy maker and residents of bedroom communities, initiatives to optimize the positive and minimize the negative social impacts of suburban communities.

Achieving sustainability through long term transport plans: cases from the United Arab Emirates.

Transportation infrastructure is one of the beacons of the rapid growth and development of the 44-year old Federation of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Across the country, and especially between the seven emirates of the Federation, transport infrastructure is largely the responsibility or domain of the federal government, based in Abu Dhabi. Due to the extensive modernized transport infrastructure system, issues of how the planning of the system addresses or factors in sustainability ideals and indicators have been of curious concern of this research, as they have been to other observers of the country’s rapid growth. Therefore this research focuses on understanding the transport infrastructure planning approach by the federal government of the UAE; examining case studies of transportation planning projects and their sustainability shortcomings across the country by the federal government, and through interviews with some federal actors in transport infrastructure planning process and data collection, the study uses the Brundtland sustainability Triple Bottom Line framework to ascertain how the planning process for projects addresses the various sustainability indicators or pillars of the framework. The research examined a transport infrastructure project extending within two of the northern emirates; the Emirate


p 16 2

CAAD

of Um Al Quwain & Ras Al Khaimah where it was chosen to be the case study of this research. The project is a multi-emirate highway, which is under construction by the federal government. Issues such as local settlement displacement, environment disturbance, and financial variations (budget based) were observed through data collection and review of project documents. The planning process of such transport infrastructure was discovered to be insufficient in addressing the various sustainability indicators/ pillars of the Brundtland Triple Bottom Line framework. Findings from the analysis of the case studies were used as a platform to suggest more sustainable alternative transport infrastructure planning framework in the UAE. The study has the potential to inform discussions and initiatives at the policy and planning levels of transport infrastructure planning in the UAE.

Perception and Preference of Public Space in Dubai, UAE: a Gender-based Study

This study explores how Emirati women in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, perceive and select the public spaces they visit or patronize. The study is based on the contention that in Dubai, women choose the public places they patronize based on perceptions of such spaces and that some women have better access to better-perceived public places. This study aims to decipher these perceptions in order to see how they can be useful for planning public spaces that appeal to, and consider the sociocultural circumstances of Emirati women. The study is conducted through face-to-face in-depth, semi-structured interviews with 20 women in Dubai supplemented by 2 focus groups discussions with Emirati women. Besides informing public space design and policy making in Dubai, the results of the study will contribute to the discourse on women and urban planning. There is literature on planning and women that contends that cities, especially public infrastructure, are not planned or designed with the preferences of women in mind. As women constitute a significant and growing percentage of the urban population worldwide, and as gender factors prominently in the notion and use of space in the Arab culture, the result of this study should help Arab cities like Dubai to plan more equitably along gender lines.

Quantifying the Impacts of Traffic Congestion on Urban Freight Delivery and End-Consumer Sector of Economy. Case of Yekaterinburg

The present research examines the relationship between traffic congestion and city freight delivery. In particular, the project reveals how the goods supply price is impacted by road congestion and how it affects the end-price of consumer products. A framework is presented to assess the extra cost of transportation due to congestion. Roughly 70 Yekaterinburg companies with delivery were interviewed to analyze the effect of traffic congestion on the delivery activities and determine the economic damage from it, which is put into the service price, and hence end-product price. Present research proves the influence of traffic congestion on the delivery activities in the city of Yekaterinburg. Overall economic damage from traffic congestion amounts to 12.32%. Moreover, the profitability of delivery activities on congested roads is 25.21% lower than on free-flow condition. As an inference, end-goods prices include certain share, which people could avoid paying in case of good-regulated urban traffic, what demonstrates the importance of dealing with the problem of urban traffic congestion.
