He naturally could not resist the atmosphere and environment that perhaps played a role in what he does today. As a child walking through the streets of Paris he enjoyed observing the chalk pavement street art with his father. along with graffiti works and cheap portraits. Moayed began to admire art but always felt that the way it is sold in bazars and common markets was not normal behavior. Art is priceless and should not be bargained cheaply if not to be bargained at all. To him it is not lines and colors but maybe admire,warmth and detail.

SKETCHING & PORTRAITS:

The art of sketching is at the heart of civilisation. Moayed was unaware of this when he began studying during which he mastered pencil and charcoal sketching, calligraphy and photography at age 17. Due to a lack of access to books or online resources during this period, he began personal research in this field, experimenting with various unconventional ways of drawing portraits. This stage lasted for a year and a half, before challenging himself

Š Moayed Faza

by sketching with ink pens towards the end of this phase. Since there’s no room for error in ink sketching, Moayed needed to think carefully before putting pen to paper, and this type of sketching may be reflected in some of his work today. It also guided him to the realisation of the great secret of sketching human faces, that of the golden ratio, which in turn is reflected in his design plans.

EARLY STAGE 2000 - 2001

Landscape Statues As a part of his job being an artist Moayed was asked to come up with some statue designs to decorate some of Tripoli’s most visited parks, each one of the statues represents the key element of the environment it will rest on. it depends on its place, there is the fountains and there is the shape that speaks to the environment.

‘Organised chaos’ is how Moayed describes this design, his instinctive natural connection with nature and his realisation that the presence of nature inside the house is essential to comfort, even though it’s not natural. The connection between plants and the existing Islamic decoration in architecture is the reason behind the overlap of the three lines, which are of different repeated patterns and different thickness. These serve another use when climbing the stairs and in preventing children from climbing over the edge and falling.

The Original RADO Watch that the concept design came from

The link between time and design was a source of concern in the designing of the Sheikh family shops for watches. The design needed to reflect the current era, and time it was an important factor in describing the place. Regarding the design of the exhibits platforms, a modern look was chosen, and black minimalistic Rado watches were chosen for their simplicity and thin design in response to this concern. The general idea is that of “a watch exhibited inside another watch”. In this way the buyer’s attention is drawn to the link between the exhibits platform and time.

The Original 3D Design

The materials were wood (for its lightness) and glass shaped into the shape of a watch. Furthermore, the color white was chosen for the floor space so as to contrast against the exhibits

platform, thus giving the impression that the watch is ‘hanging’. The thickness of the platform base measures a mere centimeter, and the largest one is 4 meters long.

Bader Gold Shop 2009 The Bader Gold shop is a small sized shop in the traditional heart of Tripoli, the area surrounding the place is almost as old as the center of Downtown. the idea of the round display panel is taken from the traditional local gold bangle worn by Libyan woman. Moayed took a few of them and hang them on glass strained with black paint. they are combined together to look like a neckless with the black back ground that brings out gold lavishly. the classical candle lamps add a touch of class. when designing a show room with a window display of only 2 m wide and total space of 15 SQM one needs to come up with alternative approach to insert the local concept of the traditional libyan bangle and the limited space available, Turn all that into an eye catching,pleasant to see view and also at the same time make practical use of the place.

UomoBoss Retail Shop 2011 A classy touch is always preferred on the classic retail shops, woods walls and the warm light makes one feel at home. but when it comes to Moayed and his designs, everything can change, he continuously pushes the normal boundaries. Š Moayed Faza

This is the “ New Class” like he descried to us, the only thing left from the “classy” style is the wood touch, and a zebra marble wall, elements will keep the costumer feel that he is on a classy brand.” if we take every classy style out of the shop people might feel weird and start thinking about the design, and they would stop thinking about the brand, and that’s something i can’t let happen” Moayed said.

The continuity of the stair design flows like it’s infinite, giving the customer a chance to try to upper floor. A shop like this one consist of a small ground floor and bigger upper level might makes it hard to believe there is something more up there.

Desert Table (Concept) Tripoli - Libya 2011

Š Moayed Faza


Sahara Table 2011 Allah created wind that carries sand as one of the methods of erosion that carves boulders and rock walls to a limited height above the earth. The impact of the carving of these boulders and rock walls intensifies the closer one gets to the earth (i.e. at the base of the rock), seeing as the wind consumes a part of it’s strength through friction with the earth.

From this phenomenon, in spite of Moayed living in what is considered a desert environment, he was only able to go to the desert a limited number of times. However, he was charmed by it’s sharp, smooth lines, and it’s cleanliness due to the grains of sand scattered by the winds. In spite of the chaos of these grains of sand, they are magnificently formed into massive dunes of varying continuing patterns. This inspired Moayed to focus his effort on trying to imitate this nature and its geomorphological shapes. He uses in this work the line as an erosion factor to carve the table with its sharp, smooth lines. It shows us the influence of the desert through the some of the visible angles that come out of it.

AL Saraya Showroom

Š Moayed Faza

AL Saraya Showroom Tripoli - Libya 2009

This showroom is one of Moayed’s first and most important logical works after he went through a series of phases, which together melt into a single crucible that caters for architectural design. The new concept of the Saraya showroom is linked to an important element of Islamic architecture, the influence of the palm tree. The first Islamic architectural structure was the house of the Prophet PBUH, which was a very simple concept, with the ceiling merely constructed from palm fronds laid over the trunk of the palm tree. And the Prophet said PBUH that the palm tree is the cousin of the believer, because it has goodness and is adapted to provide continuous shade, its leaves do not fall out, its fruits are beneficial, and the trunk has a variety of uses.


51

AL Saraya Showroom Tripoli - Libya 2009

The Saraya showroom is designed so that the façade resembles a large palm frond that comfortably lights the showroom by using green reflective glass to colour the palm frond. The colour black is also used to represent the colour of the date fruit that the palm tree produces. Some commentators went on to say that the influence of the Ka’aba on this design was significant in terms of the shape and colour. As for the interior design of the showroom, it centres on use of the lines of the palm fronds, which start at a point and spread out from there in straight lines, in the same pattern as the façade. Furthermore, the usage of concealed lighting instead of direct lighting or spotlighting gives the showroom a relaxed atmosphere, just like the light of a cloudy sky to allow the customer’s attention to be drawn to the exhibits through relaxing lighting as opposed to elsewhere.

Once again Moayed bases his designs on the shadows of the desert, after a series of detailed studies of the nature of the surrounding desert hills, the eect of the wind on them and the way in which they are sculpted by it. The unit is covered by a recyclable aluminium frame to protect the manufacturing process from being threatened by the environment by acting as a shield against the summer heat by reducing the rise in air temperature and preventing heat from penetrating the building, keeping it cool by reducing heat convection.

Š Moayed Faza

AL Shiekh Watch shop Tripoli - Libya 2008

As for lighting, the openings present in the frame allow for natural lighting to enter the showroom, and there is a layer of glass behind the aluminium folds. As for the winter, the wind is the main incentive for the metal folds encasing the building. These layers vibrate to the sounds of the wind in dierent rhythms which give the complex a unique nature and a dierent character which provokes a storm of thought.

Tripoli University Ceremonial Gate 2010 An entrance to Fatah University‌ this gate, which will be constructed in Fatah University is evenly distributed over an area in the shape of a 1000m2 square, measuring 100m by 100m and located on the left of the law college parallel to the main gate and opposite the Central National Library. Despite the fact that the normal design for gates consists of one entrance headed by a curved arch which runs from north to south or east to west, this design may stray from this typical pattern. Instead of crossing through a dark tunnel and exiting on the other side, this design resembles an oak tree Leave , which is entirely green like the Libyan flag. Š Moayed Faza

Furthermore, the space in the centre of the entrance is like the space under an oak tree which plays upon its darkness and the rays of light which penetrate the complex from several isolated spots. This gives the students, and all those walking through the gate a feeling that nature surrounds them, and that they are walking under its shade. The four separate entrances also allow people to roam around.

As the Mediterranean House emerged in the area were Moayed lived, this had an impact on some of his work, this small villa for a family of tree members,made it clear to the viewer how Mediterranean architecture shows its elements, the well known white color of this era made to reflect the high temperature of sun where no AC was used in that time, also the narrow windows, to decrease the amount of sun rays, Alfenaa ( the courtyard with a fountain to make the air cooler inside ) one the most famous elements of this type of architecture, Moayed made a swimming pool rather than a fountain to refresh the air, top roof with small open areas to let natural light illuminate the place, but one of the main reason of alfenaa is to have much privacy in the Muslim world, here the family could swim without the fear of being exposed. also the Mediterranean architecture is well knowing of it narrow streets and it’s crowded buildings they are near each others to avoid the that do the sun heat, from that concept the corridor of the villa feels like you are walking on these narrow streets. The living room overlooks the swimming pool, as well as the Main Suite. The kitchen is open to the living room, and there is 1 room for kids and 1 guest room
