SENIOR DESIGN PROJECT
UKAZ, ARABIC POETRY F O U N D AT I O N
The Poetr y Foundation includes a museum, an academy and a social space that will celebrate the poets just like the Ukaz Market.Each space is impor tant to the next, the movement of space evolves as the person walks towards the creek and explores the project more. The purpose of this movement is to awaken the poetry of the reader. The common sense needed when reading a poem is the visual, yet for him to understand the experience of the poet and relate he needs to include the auditory sense. Once that is awakened, he/she can enhance all the senses and taste poetry. When all of this happens, a white noise is created in the person’s poetic silence.
CASE STUDY EVOLUTION
Project Approach A white noise is produced by combining all different frequencies together which is what allows you to mask any sound you don’t need. It is heard as a hiss which is exactly what I want the reader to feel since I want him to put himself in the experience and be the poet. The white color is composed of all the other colors; white noise is a sound heard just like the sound of the wind.
The site chosen for this project is the Creek next to Al Shandaghah. Creek is the old heart of Dubai, it will take people back in time to where poetry was so important. The context of the site ﬁts with the project since it includes a writing center, a heritage village, diving village and transportation. The students in the academy can get inspired from the festival that will happen there, the exhibition spaces, repeating the history where the best work will be hanged.

MONTESSORI SCHOOL SUSTAINABLE DESIGN PROJECT Propor tion is the main element in my design, the interaction between the indoor and outdoor spaces. Since the school focuses on the senses and on the interaction spaces, I created spaces that interact in a propor tion relation. The design of the building is very linear and rectangular, with many extended slabs and cantilevers to provide shade and movement for the outdoor spaces. Separate walls are used for outdoor spaces to emphasize the grid and proportions and also to provide a physical and visual path. Landscape and material in this project are very important since they help give the quality of outdoor environment, a green school.
CASE STUDY EVOLUTION
Project Approach The approach to this project was inspired by Mies Van De Rohe, less is more. Simplicity, proportion, and quality are key words to keep in the design approach.
The project is to design an elementary school in Khor Fakkan. The focus is to create a new type of learning environment that fosters creativity, experiences, discovery and creates a connection to the community.

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN PROJECT
TEMPORARY S U STA I N A B L E S H E LT E R
A lot of people in the world have been suffering from unexpected disasters, civil conflicts or wars. As architects, we should be more conscious about how we can contribute to the evacuees to suppor t the refuge life. A temporary dwelling system is proposed which is self-buildable, expandable, non-site-oriented and environmental-friendly. Melamchi, Kathmandu, NEPAL. The three main disasters which are assigned in this project are flood, earthquake and cold wave. The structure is supposed to stand against these structures therefore solutions needed to be presented.
CASE STUDY EVOLUTION
Project Approach SITE: MELAMCHI, NEPAL The standard size of the site would be approx.6,000m2. The main structure is based on the initial sketch which has a dynamic style, the edges add to their suffering effect.Although it represents what they passed through in their past, it still provides them security and safety.
The initial sketches were representing the scars of the people forming triangular shapes. These shapes were meant to remind the people of their past and that they have overcome that living in strength and faith in present. After a long process, these triangular scars transformed into triangular structural shape which is the truss that holds the main structure that is based on triangles.

CASE STUDY EVOLUTION
Project Approach The approach to this project was inspired by Renzo Piano,Kanak center. The circular parts of the building are surrounded by a cultural element of Dubai to complement with the main concept the Barasti. These Barasti columns function as the bamboo sticks. The building shelters the interior so when a personperceives it from the outside, only a tent will show.
The Barasti columns will allow for wind circulation in the building within the tent. (Chimney Effect) Louvers are placed infront of the windows directly to ďŹ lter the air going in the building. These columns were also used as a double skin to protect the building that is made out of glass. (Double Skin)
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN PROJECT Creek is the center for tourism, allowing the tourists to enjoy a new side in Dubai. An urban design proposal is suggested to give light to the heart of old Dubai. A ďŹ‚oating city that provides a connection between Bur Dubai and the Creek, a new idea presented to allow for sustainable transportation and a new experience. The overlapping shapes are inspirted by the movement of people in that area. Dubai is known for its movement and continuous growth, this design proposal will allow for growth and a great connection between two important parts of the city.

URBAN DESIGN, CONCEPTUAL PROPOSAL
LIGHT BEAM MUSEUM BEAMS OF LIGHT, LIGHT MUSEUM â€œTo provide meaningful architecture is not to parody histor y, but to ar ticulate it.â€? The great architect Daniel Libskind in his Jewish Museum used beams of concrete to emphasize on the suffering attachment people would feel when walking in the interiors. Light Museum is aimed to experience people a journey of life and hope. The building is structured with the shape of tunnels, light guides them the pathway.
CASE STUDY EVOLUTION
Project Approach After being inspired with what he did, I used the same approach of the beams they are beams of light that provide a pathway to people to lead them while they walk in te darkness of the tunnels. Light is created by slanting the walls, the closer you get to the top, the more light will enter.
This would give people the experience of hope and life. Tunnel as a shape was used to provide this pathway where it starts in a narrow place and expands in the end with the walls angled to provide different light beams.
ALCOUTINS HOUSE ALCOUTINS HOUSE BIM PROJECT The Alcoutins House follows the production method of the space that suppor ts our projects by making a study model in balsa wood and K-Line board. In this process it is worth mentioning the nonprogrammed, intuitive par t; that which arises from sporadic acts free from any preconception other than the result of the analysis of the objective conditioning features of the site and of any regulator y system of the architectonic design.
SIMPLE HOUSE SIMPLE HOUSE BIM PROJECT The secretive life-style of the client is presumed and imagined by the architect MOON HOON. Thus the bunker like home trenched into the ear th, with an atrium in the middle was the first plan. The horizontal slit like villa savoye cut the home in half, one submerged, the other floating. The unbearable lightness of the heavy being is an aspiration to be held hostage to the idea of anti-gravity. The humble low lying cur ved roof paid much homage to the traditional homes of jeju. Many times a well agreed upon scheme is dropped due to sudden mood changes of the well-off clients. This was another one of those cases.
