EXCURSION

After a trip in three countries in Europe ( Prague, Salzburg, Vienna) we were asked to pick five different photographs that are related to “History, Environment, Architecture, Structure, Ojbect” that have a theme in common. My theme as you can see in . the next page is the Cirlce

The project was exhibited in our new campus for architecture Darat Othman Bdair

SENSE OF PLACE

This Project aimed to create a living space that is based on sensuality and functional zoning, which will add spirit and comfort to the place we call home. Also the seperation between the public and private zones is very important for feeling the security and privacy

SUSTAINABILITY

The form was inspired by a bench I found in the site (university). The project is divided into ďŹ ve segments that are aligned with the surrounding lines of the street so as to relate to the environment. The main module revolves each time and creates another form. At the same time this new form adapts to the rules of sustainability

Sustainability

Solar panels are put on the rooftops to collect solar energy that can light the bus stop in the evening. Also the orientation of the segments deals with blocking the excess of sun and wind

MODULARITY

Designing a library using the module in the previous project. In this project the module itself formed the grid in which the zoning process was based on. The library consists of ďŹ ve segments ; which are the three (concrete) modules facing each other, another two glass cubes combining them together and the book shelving sector from which the grid extends to other zones horizontally

HOUSING & URBAN PLANNING

Due to political issues in Syria, refugees started to cluster in the nothern area of Mafraq in Jordan.This Urban project was designed to facilitate and control this issue The main concept of the design is to provide only basic needs to the refugees. The use of caravans that are one step higher of the ground and also sacriďŹ cing the roof to strangers in the futuristic vertical expansion will reduce the feeling of ownership of the . land


PROTOTYPES

Prototype A

Prototype B

Prototype C

In such emergency cases caravans are the best solution to house large numbers of refugees. Therefore, suitable measurements and the structural materials and bonding between caravans were studied. Three prototypes were designed so as to control the number of people in one famiy/group. These prototypes were distributed in clusters that share similar social status in consideration of security and control. This design allows futuristic vertical expansion and also could be used by citizens with low income

In this project we were asked to experience diefferent photography techniques that enhanced our visual perspective. For me photography is a hobby and some of the photographs are taken randomly at diferent places
