I AM A DESIGNER

This portfolio is an attempt to introduce myself through my own personal journey, that is spread over a range of international experiences and very diverse design interests. I recently graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a master degree in Design, it was the perfect opportunity to engage as a designer within fields as varied as architecture, landscape, urban design, interiors and social design. I believe in the power of design, and the significance of the multi-disciplinary approach to the built environment. Thus, this portfolio is organized based on the many fields that I’ve got to use my logical but sensitive mind, with a practical approach to problem solving and drive to see things through to completion. All documents featured in this portfolio including professional work are my own production except if clearly mentioned otherwise.

France Lessac, 2015 Architecture/ urban design research

Participated in Travel studio to investigate about the new economic forces and selfsufficient rural architecture, we worked closely with the Techstyle hause project by RISD/Brown. And integrate it in the urban context, in order to propose a self-reliant village.

South Korea Seoul, 2015 Adaptive reuse/urban design

I was part of Travel studio to study the concepts of transformative responsive architecture and to explore urban development of Seoul. It was an adaptive reuse advance design studio focused on developing transformative interventions for an outdated mega-structure (Seunsangga 1960) in Seoul, South Korea, as a way of reconnecting surrounding neighborhoods while activating the space. And explore relationship between urbanism and the interior space through adaptive reuse.

Saudi Arabia Alula, 2016 Conservation of Architectural Heritage

Visiting (Madâin Sâlih) the first UNESCO World Heritage property to be inscribed in Saudi Arabia. This trip to my home country formed an integral part of my thesis research, I was able to support my research by interviewing archaeologist and collecting materials over 9 KM in the site. I looked at the ways in which archaeological sites are preserved and presented for the public in Saudi Arabia.

Portugal Lisbon and Porto, 2016 Conservation of Architectural Heritage

My passion for the conservation of Architectural heritage took me further to Portugal on independent research trip to investigate Portuguese experience in conserving architectural heritage. I am very interested in translating history and time by architectural interventions. And I have had the opportunity to meet the Architect behind many interesting projects in this field. That was an enriching experience that took my interest to a new level.

Conservation of cultural heritage Thesis design project 2016

REVELATION IN THE DESERT

Mada’in Saleh Archaeological site in Saudi Arabia

How should we experience a site, especially one that is fragmented and possibly illegible? How does intervention affect what we see, what we feel, and what we know? How can display promote an effective and active dialog between past and present? This project was designed in collaboration with: The Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage. as part of the new vision to preserve historic and archaeological sites in Saudi Arabia. UNESCO World Heritage Centre, as this site is the first World Heritage property to be inscribed in Saudi Arabia. #unite4heritage Outstanding Thesis project. for the contribution to preservation and conservation of cultural heritage. from RISD Interior Architecture master program 2016.

Spatial Interpretation By sheltering the Archaeological excavated ruins of 2000 years old Nabatean residential structure, and adding a walkway taking the visitors around the ruins, and providing spatial interpretation device to give the visitors a spatial feeling of the Nabatean house.

Lifting 2000 years, revealing great civilization, feeling the weight of revelation. 15


Visitors will walk through the traces of the ancient residential unit, looking up; the original walls are mirrored on the roof to enhance the spatial experience. Spiral stair will transit visitors to the viewing platform to view the site.

Indirect interpretation device By protecting the Nabatean tomb and providing access to visitors, the intervention aims to create indirect interpretation device, to understand the tomb spatially and chronologically, It is a reincarnating of the tomb in its negative form and taking it out of its original context.

IN-BETWEEN; RECLAIMING WATER’S EDGE Fox Point, Providence,RI

To provide better access to coastal parks of the urban populations of Providence. To enhance coastal recreation opportunities for residents and tourists. To extend habitat corridors for migrating birds and fish species. To create a place for people to experience the water’s edge and to touch water.

Urban redevelopment | Adaptive Reuse Interior Architecture Studio START-UP CITY Seun-sangga, Seoul, Korea

This is an adaptive reuse advance design studio focused on developing transformative interventions for an outdated mega structure in Seoul, South Korea, as a way of reconnecting surrounding neighborhoods while activating the space. Developed in the 1960’s as an urban renewal project in Seoul, Seunsangga became the first mixeduse building in the city. The intent was to create a multidimensional city by spreading pedestrian through a series of elevated decks. The intervention will focus on transforming the public spaces by exploring the theme of transformative responsive architecture.

Bamboo’s ability to bend

Degree of Visibility

This project is part of re-adapting the existing building of the Southeast Asian community center to support families and children. Part of the design was the bamboo facade system that was developed through an interweaving process, it is an open lattice system, in which the density of the bamboo frame increases in different steps and at the same time, The bamboo facade system covers the exterior of the building the design of the opening was programmed based in the building. The natural light streams in through the narrow spaces between the bamboo stalks and it is visual connector to the culture.

Advance Drawing and Computing Tectonics COMMENSURATION: MEASURING AS A WAY OF DRAWING Transformation and reconfiguration of gallery space at museum How do we understand measuring as the generator of drawing? How do we use invention in conjuring up a measuring process? How do we make translations from data gathering to drawing the first lines?

Measuring different entities is inherently weaved into our life, to the point that we barely notice how many times a day we “measure� things. While we often associate measuring with quantitative data and numbers, the physical, the spatial and the material also find their way into processes of measuring. This project is about generating a way of measuring by employing the cone of vision as mathematical and geometric process to quantify and qualify the space.
