Loud

Tokyo, Japan


Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is one of the most crowded cities in the world. It is described as overwhelming by the scale and the design of its buildings. Introducing a music center to such a city needs to be attractive, beneficial and entertaining to the public. Although the city lacks public space, it is extremely busy during all hours of the day. In order to implement a music center in this area, the project needs to fit the chosen site. The proposal

introduces a public space that is enclosed by trees. It is colorful due to the yellow and red boxes and brings entertainment with the addition of the stage in front of the steps. The music center’s interior is charming since the colorful boxes are accessible and frame views to the exterior. While walking to the main auditorium, the visitor passes through the exhibition space that contains these colorful boxes, which enriches the experience of the space.

Loud is a music center that reflects its vibes from the exterior as well as in its interior spaces.

Mounti winery

Ras el Metn, Lebanon


Designing a winery is a very delicate process since its goal is to provide the visitor with a rich experience. Blending nature with the building and arousing the visitor’s 5 senses while discovering each space is essential. The project below underlines this idea by showcasing framed views of the vineyards and the mountains, allowing diffused light in the spaces and awakening the grapes’

scent by centering the winery between the vineyards. As for the blocks’ slanted roofs, they appear as if they are rising from the soil of the vineyards. This allows the winery to merge with the earth by adding rusted steel on its facades. Solar panels are placed on the roofs in order to provide pure energy from the sun and keep the building eco-friendly.

Mounti winery is a combination of seven longitudinal blocks that connect with each other through outdoor and underground connections. Views of the vineyard, the wine cellar and the wine making room are framed while moving between the blocks.

The innovator

Byblos, Lebanon


Byblos is the oldest city in Lebanon and one of the oldest cities in the world, dating since 5000 BC. The intervention below takes place at the beginning of the city’s historical site, which includes the famous Citadel, the El-Houssami house, and numerous fascinating monuments and ruins.

The main idea in this project is to connect the historical site with the center by allowing the circulation between the blocks to relate to its surrounding. While entering the project, the visitor finds himself in an outdoor courtyard with the option to enter any space or walk straight into the site.

The innovator acts as an informative space, which allows the visitor to understand the site before entering and exploring it.

[un]controlled

London, United Kingdom


At the outbreak of World War II, the Port of London was the busiest port in the world. The German Navy quickly sought to put a stranglehold on this route, and to this end utilized a new weapon, which was the magnetic mine. The English were alarmed and took action by building these offshore forts as an effective mean of dealing with the laying of the mines.

The main apparent idea behind this intervention is the addition of the blocks to these historical towers. By adding them, the contrast between modern and old will be highly underlined. It is in one way respecting the existing towers without clearly touching them and at the same time acting like a puzzled element to these structures by respecting their original presence.

[un]controlled is an Astronomy Center that will include an observatory, a planetarium, an agora, conference room, workshops and provision of accommodation.

City analysis

Beirut, Lebanon


Beirut is a city that contains over 2.5 million inhabitants and has an area of 20 million m2. Between 2001 and 2016, the city has seen an increase in the percentage of its population by 20%. Over the years, the city has been going through dramatic changes and has neglected the need of public space for its citizens.

Below is a plan representing the mass and void of the city highlighting the lack of public spaces versus the condensed regions. Beirut has been defined as an overpopulated vibrant city. This density creates a major effect on the locals’ daily lives in terms of traffic, noise and pollution.

City analysis identifies 48 nodes that allow the people, who have lost their affiliation with the city, to once again reconnect with it through potential public spaces that have been pointed out on the map.
