German Language Centre Group Work

Muttrah

Knowledge Transfer

The task is to build a German Language Centre in the middle of a busy place in Muscat. The site is located in Muttrah, the port area of Muscat and where interaction and knowledge is transferred, from the people to the centre and the centre to the people, therefore the Language Centre is called Knowledge Transfer. In order for us to accomplish the theme into our building, knowledge had to surround the whole building. Therefore, firstly, a void is the centre piece of the

building. Secondly, the void is crafted through bookshelves surrounded the whole building that also act as the facade of the building. Thirdly, classrooms built on boxes were created that come out bookshelves, the shelves and fulfill the needs of our German Language Centre. Knowledge transfer is achieved through all the spaces provided to interact, from the coffee shop in the centre to the stairs people sit to read, classrooms, the gallery and the spaces between classes.

Muscat 24 7 Ruwi Group Work

Threshold

In Ruwi we saw a lot of compact houses and a good amount of mixed use buildings, where the first floor is for commercial purposes and the upper floors are used for residential purposes or storage in some cases. By having compact buildings of mixed use and residential makes it very convenient for the people living around that area to go about and get their daily needs without a car. For a city like Muscat that is car based, it is very important that we have pedestrian paths for the func-

tions close by along the narrow roads of Ruwi. Therefore part of the concept includes providing various shaded walking paths. One of the most striking features in the site are the shacks that the Indian and Pakistani laborers lived. It is not just the deteriorated living conditions but the spatial identity they gave to the place; it became their own space within the shacks.

Our design concept is based on our analysis of the site which is having a clear contrast between manmade and nature. For example, the mountains in contrast with the concrete structures and the roads. Taken into consideration the analysis and research done, our design is highly influenced by the fort and the arch which are the main features of our concept.

have decided to spread our design along the expressway which connects the developments and different areas of Oman, similarly, to history where forts were placed in strategic areas near each other and later connected by a continuous wall. In conclusion, our design and the expressway, together connect the past, the present and the future of the development of Oman in different areas.

In the past, forts were used for military purposes, enclosed to the outside world with openings for only ammunitions and located on high landscape yet blended into the landscape. The contrast of the openings and relationship of outside and inside spaces are translated into our design by the use of arches creating an arcade, thus experiencing the place from all angles. The arches also act as a loadbearing element of the building. Additionally, the floors vary in both height and function, having the higher floors used as viewports and the lower in height floors as a different function such as, a restaurant and a gallery.
