Just received my bachelor certificate from the University of Stuttgart last June. Had my 7th semester in GUC Berlin. I have been working as a junior teaching assistant in (introduction to Architectural design) with Prof. Dr. Florian Seidel. Attempting to further my education outside the realm of my collegiate experiences through an internship in the professional field of architecture and urban design. I firmly believe that an internship will help me grow as an architect, a student, and as an individual, and will assist me to transition into the professional field. In turn I believe that my abilities would be an asset to any firm. I am a quick learner, an attentive listener, and a passionate designer.

CAIRO NODES “urban design, development & sustainable architecture”
For a 3 months bachelor’s project, I chose the topic and the project to be challenging. It was posing Cairo’s huge expansion in the last 30 years and the problems that were created since that blowup. What ideas and solutions could be offered to solve everyday fusses? Proposing the idea of urban nodes, that would be scattered through the whole city. These nodes have mixed use functions with affordable housing units, and each node will be solving the urban site’s problems. To move forward, I chose the node of El-Tagamoa El-Khames to be my focusing node. Challenges: 1-City for cars not for people 2-Non existance of pedestrian life and public spaces. 3-Separation of functions 4-No public transportation

LEARN-MOVEPLAY-GROUND “ summer workshop, redesign schools’ playgrounds”
Learn-Move-Play-Ground was a twoweek-workshop in cooperation with the TU Berlin and the Stuttgart University. The main objective was to increase the quality of open spaces in the public schools in Cairo. As a first step the project started with two primary schools whose schoolyards were in a very bad condition. In the first week, the workshop focused on adequate communication with children in order to understand their needs and desires. Students and children collaboratively developed viable concepts. The second part was dedicated to the design and development of the playground equipment. The challenge was the implementation of the design in 1:1 scale within a tight time schedule and under difficult conditions regarding material resources and construction.
With this book, we would like to illustrate the process and the implemented design in detail. The goal is to offer ideas and hints of possible solutions, which could be developed for further projects and designbuild studios. The furniture and landscapes we have realised are simple, low-cost, and built with uncomplicated techniques. Nevertheless, they have the power to be flexible and adaptable because their functions and meanings are open to different uses and can be readapted in line with the imagination and dreams of the children.

OPERA AIDA â€œstage design, architectural atmospheres, light design, performances & script writingâ€?
We consider architecture not only as an enclosure of space. It is not only defined by walls, floors and ceilings. Architecture comes alive through visual expression, dynamic light, sound and spaces of interaction. Our objective is the architectural discourse and the aesthetic comprehension of space. The unique and expressive visual representation was a major part of Staging Cairo, the use of different and new media highly supported. An essential aspect of this course was the processbased work, interdisciplinary discussions with media artists and dramaturgs as well as regular pin-up presentations.

ACT I, SCENE I & II
ACT II, SCENE I & II
In the middle of Aswan café, people are gathered at the end of the day to meet, play board games and have fun. Some of them bet everyday while playing board games. The café gathers neighborhood people who know each other to sit together daily. Reda is the beverages guy; people call his name to order beverages and shesha. There are two famous visitors of the café who go there daily to play board games and bet for Aida; a special drink of the cafe. Am Malek and am Amen.
On one day Am Malek lost several games in a row and all the people in the café were watched him lose. He was in a really bad situation; he has never been in that situation before and didn’t know what to do! After that day Am Malek went home mad after paying the bill of drinks for his incredible loss. He started thinking about what to do for revenge. He discovered that Am Reda is in love with his daughter and right away he thought of using Reda the guy who serves Aida, to cheat his way to victory. At first Reda refused but he later accepted the offer.
People were surprised when Am Malek came back with a winning streak; he didnâ€™t lose a game from the beginning of the day. The tension between the two rivals rose and more and more people gathered to watch the game. Some started doubting what is happening but the rest didnâ€™t care as they watched in excitement. As the week came to an end Reda went to Am Malek to take his prize for helping him out, he also confessed that he is in love with his daughter and he wants to marry her.
ACT IV, SCENE I & II
In favor of Am Malek, Am Amon fired Reda. In addition he ordered him not to talk to Amina again. Reda went to Amina to tell her what her father did. She told him that her father will not allow them to get married and suggested that they leave the country and start a new life in another place. Am Malek was so sad for losing his daughter for a couple of drinks.
NEW CHILDREN’S EGYPTIAN MUSEUM
The Egyptian Museum is considered a very important museums all over the Middle east, as it contains lots of old pharonic monuments . It is located in one of the most famous squares all over the world, Tahreer square. It was so weird to have a museum having all of these qualities but missing an attractive children’s museum inside. The competition was to redesign or build a new children’s museum, exhibiting only Pharonic history.
DESIGN STUDIO II
PROF. BARBARA PAMPE, PROF. VITTORIA CAPRESI
The old Egyptian museum is located in such an active context. Directly connected to Tahrir square where the Egyptian revolution took place. And now it is considered the most famous square worldwide. The museumâ€™s supervisors decided to build a childrenâ€™s museum beside the old Egyptian museum.
GUC UNIVERSITY â€œintegrated design project. Design, theory, building construction & building physicsâ€?
For an integrated Design project, integrating Design, Building Construction, Building physics, Theory & steel Structure all together to get one output, which is a University Library. It was decided to be in the center of the university, in front of the public space which is full of kiosks, students, etc. We were assigned to design a Library having 250,000 Books! On a large scale. Facing a problem of a street passing in the center of the space assigned to build the Library in. DESIGN STUDIO III

Lohmühlen Island, Berlin “sustainable urban design & architecture for social housing”
In the northern part of the Lohmühlinsel a new urban and dense neighborhood for living and working shall arise, involving the green southern part of the island and the adjacent east cultural centre “Arena Berlin”. Target groups are start-up companies, creative from all sectors and housing for different social levels. In aspect of sustainable urban development (compact city) are to develop innovative building and floor plan typologies, which will allow a fine-grained mix. In particular, a comprehensive range of typologies with a high variability. DESIGN STUDIO IV
PROF. DR, HELMUT BOTT
Example of different housing units, each targeting a special group of people. Focusing on the idea of merging offices and residential units in a one building.
THE ROVING SPI DER
The roving spider is a product of a one day project that revolved around developing and designing a concept for a mobile library. How could future mobile libraries be like ? How could they be conceptualized nowadays and how will the users interact with them? Attempting to develop a model that it is really revolutionary catering for the needs of the users. We develped a portable library that moves and transforms like a spider!

CITY FRONTS, VENICE
The city fronts is a project that aims to illustrate the city facades in one postcard. Each postcard shows the city as an elevation perspective. I take pictures of building facades and illustrate the postcard. The first issue is Venice, London will be the next city!
