WATERFRONT COMMUNITIES AND CLIMATE CHANGE Living With Water at Frihamnen, Gothenburg, Sweden Master Thesis During the last decade, Gothenburg city has been faced major challenges in development of its waterfront areas. On one hand, there are many abandoned industrial land placed next to the water in central parts of the city which need to be renewed. On the other hand, there is a high risk of looding in these low-lying areas due to future climate changes. It is highly crucial to manage the future waterfront development in a way that the city and its waterfront are secured from being washed out. The key question here is how to develop a low-lying site along the water- such as Frihamnen in Gothenburg city- considering the serious risks of sea level rise and extreme weather events? What is an appropriate urban structure and city-water relationship in this context? The proposed master plan

BÄVEÅN, STREAMS CAN COME THROUGH Uddevalla, Sweden

Design for Sustainable Development in a Local Context

Uddevalla is a small municipality north of Gothenburg. This project concerns sustainable development in this region. The point of departure was to look into the unique quality of this town which is its closeness to the sea and Bäveån, a river that goes through the town. The effort was to propose a solution for revitalizing waterfront areas in the city center concerning the serious threat of looding due to sea-level rise and extreme weather events. This work has been done in a group of 3 students under supervision of professors Björn Malbert and Lena Falkheden in the school of architecture at Chalmers University.

ODENPLAN

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN Public Places and Spaces Analysis of current conditions

Proposed design for the square

Odenplan is one of the main squares and transportation hubs in central Stockholm. New commuter train line was planned by SL Company. This new line passes through Odenplan. Thus the bigger station is needed to accommodate the increased low of passengers. The task in this project is to redesign the square for the time the new line and station is built.

NYA ÅRSTAFÄLTET A NEIGHBOURHOOD IN THE SOUTH OF

STOCKHOLM

Stockholm Urban Lab II Årstafältet is a neighbourhood in the south of Stockholm consisting of 50 hectares empty green land. On November 2008 there was an international design competition for the master plan design of this site. This project was done based on that competition. It was carried out in a group of 5 students under supervision of professors Bojan Boric and Anna Webjörn in the school of architecture at KTH University.

FOUR FLOOR RESIDENTIAL BUILDING

Providing lower-income families with decent well-designed affordabe houes Final Project Tehran is a city that unfortunately is very segregated. The southern parts have a hotter and drier climate and are more polluted. Families with lower income rates live in these parts while higher-income families live mostly in northern parts of the city which have a mild climate, more vegetation and less pollution. But I believe that the lack of inancial resources should not take away the right of living in a nice, healthy, and well-designed environment. I also believe that architect can play an important and effective role in providing decent affordable housing no matter of building situation and land prices. Therefore, my effort in this project was to design an affordable residential apartment in of the nicest neighborhoods north of Tehran. This four-story residential unit consists of 14 small lats (7 two-room lats 57 m2 each and 7 three-room lats 90 m2 each), parking and storage space for each lat in the basement, and common amenities in the last loor and on the roof. The building has reinforced concrete structure and facades are made of prefabricated light concrete and wood. The project has been done individually under the supervision of Professor Hassan Miri.

EXHIBITION OF STUDENTS’ WORK From design to implementation

Independant Project In autumn 2004 I initiated a group of students to design and set up an exhibition of students’ work in the university. The place we chose was a 12m x 6m room situated in the entrance hall of the architecture school. It used to be a gallery in which everybody could display an exhibition but it had not been used for a long time and it needed major redecoration. We designed a modern black and white exhibition hall with a special lighting where, instead of displaying the actual work, images of the entire students’ projects were projected on the wall.

WOODEN BOWER Light and shadow play

Basics of Architectural Design (1) This was one of my irst architectural designs. The assignment was to design a small bower for placing in the yard of a residential apartment. The material used in my proposed design is brick for the base, wood for the frames and colored glass.
