MIDTERM
EXAM
PROJECT
 




In
this
exercise
we
had
a
limited
time
to
 design
a
house
for
an
architect
on
top
of
 the
Moqattam
hill
in
Cairo
being
inspired
 by
a
contemporary
architect,
which
in
my
 case
was
BIG
(Bjarke
Ingels).
This
exercise
 was
just
after
Project
1
“Beyond
Style”
 where
each
chose
an
architect
and
 researched
his
style,
so
in
this
week
 students
exchanged
architects
and
had
 limited
time
to
think
and
design
according
to
his
style.
 


In
my
case,
like
BIG
thinks
in
his
designing
process
and
after
many
trials
 with
plasticine,
I
got
inspired
with
the
Domino
Effect,
that
starts
from
a
 cube
gets
cut
into
slices
and
with
a
push
all
lean
onto
each
other
which
 gives
this
domino
effect.
