Architecture Portfolio


Philosophy I believe in digital design method that fit to multiple aspect in pragmatic projects with optimum communications inbetween architects and clients which lead to mutually satisfactory vision and results in ultimiate quality.

Architecture/Design

Parametric modeling/BIM

I am specializing in digital architecture and generative designs. My approach is bridging the radical architectural explorations and pragmatic projects, which could push the periphery of architecture future.

I believe parametric modeling is more than an aesthetic trend.With parametric tools I am able to react quickly to changes and design, calculate and analyze many different variations in real time. Its important for me to communicate with clients and constructors in the same common design language and be able to work closely(BIM modeling,panalization,structural optimization,facade solutions etc.)


Fabrication

Visualization

I have hands-on experience with cutting-edge technologies of architectural production and in rapid prototype and additive manufacturing. Strong technical skills in computational production(with 3D printing/MakerBoot/Ultramaker+Cura,CNC) and physical models craftmanship provide me possibility to estimate potential geometry of details and structure as well as observe final construction.

I believe that quality of visualisations contribute much to the project succes as it always defines first impression for the clients. My visualization technic largely include not only architectural renders but also animation, 360 simulation,and augmented reality with VR device.

Ideas exchange I am always willing to share my own vision and ideas. Widely, in many famous architectural magazines and blogs I try to explore/ share/exchange ideas.

The continuous and fluid surfaces navigates between interior and exterior nearly seamlessly. The resultant design is a fluid form that defines the site’s perimeter and enables a woven program of indoor and outdoor retail venues. By wrapping the building around the site’s edges, the shopping center gains the elevation necessary to become a prominent reference point in the town.

The crafted mall massing responds to geological forces visible in the sedimentary creases abundant on the facade. Visualising the creases and texture require explorations using parametric techniques at certain moments during the design process. GRC was an integral to developing a double curved surface. This building is comprised of over 1200 unique panels ranging from 4sqm to 8sqm. Reawakening of the spirit of craftsmanship redundant in the age of automation.

In the long term, after the economy has regained its viability and vibrancy, market forces and international competition will likely be the driving forces behind Iraq’s agricultural trade patterns. Iraq’s historical trade and food consumption patterns suggest that food grains such as wheat and rice, feedstuffs including corn, barley, and protein meals, vegetable oil, sugar, meat, and dairy products are all likely to be important imports into Iraq. In the decade from 1977, Iraq was self sufficient in cereals, and agricultural imports amounted to 22% of total imports. During recent decades, however, Iraq has shifted from net food exporter to food importer. This shift was prompted by several factors, including population increase, a rising standard of living, increased industrialization, migration of farm workers to urban centers, and loss of soil productivity in poorly drained irrigated areas of the south.
