Tectonic Gentrification . DXB This project utilizes the tectonic nature of a machine and contrasts it with the complexity of the human system. Drawing inspiration from the idea of human landscapes, this project operates on the simplicity of a hybrid, of which its properties are exploited into the creation of complex, flexible geometrical hybrids that adapt and map their surroundings. These hybrids are examined within the context of Port Rashid in an attempt of gentrifying it into the hub which initiated the life of the city that it beholds. The project captures the fascination of gentrification of a site and the concept of urban revival, even further, whilst it starts to adapt and reform its function from a (wo)man-made object and into a monument of nature at the end of its life cycle as it turns into a medium of a growing a designed coral reef for Port Rashid; In an attempt at infinite revival.

Coral Reefs The shallow, calcium carbonate-rich waters of the southern Arabian Gulf are ideal for reef-building corals, and substantial reefs have formed along the coast of the United Arab Emirates, particularly along the Abu Dhabi Emirate.The coral reefs of UAE waters are home to a vast array of marine species. Coral reefs are among the UAE’s most biologically-diverse habitats. Besides their conservation and aesthetic value, they are important for fisheries and coastal protection. Ras Ghanada is Abu Dhabi’s most vibrant reef but needs to be protected from development future generations.

Sustainability_oil and petroleum ///

03 UAE lifestyle components

Following discovery of petroleum offshore in 1966, the development of the oil industry revolutionized the economy and society of Dubai. Oil revenues enabled the government to undertake major infrastructure and industrial projects that included construction of Port Rashid, the dry docks, an aluminum smelter, and the Jebel Ali port and industrial area. In addition to oil revenues, another important force in the post-war development of Dubai was the local merchant community with its network of international contacts.

Alraha Beach Residences This project merges the contextual and neighborly environments of a traditional UAE neighborhood , freej, into its vertical formal setting.

The projects reduces its massing as it progresses upwards in order to create more open and communal spaces within each level. This reduction in density opens up the tower to the outside as well as creating more points of interaction between occupants. Furthermore, a courtyard atrium cuts across the massing in order to bask every level with light and reinforce the feeling of a neighborhood in a vertical setting. /// ROLE . project design architect /// research - concept development

1381 Mixed Use Development This project takes a deeper look at the pragmatic issue of maximizing site usage in contrast to form, function and privacy constraints.

With a requested massing of over 80,000 sqm on a 12,000 sqm site, the overall massing was too forced on the site ; there for, the massing began to gradually grow towards the back of the site in order to naturally extend the site into its fifth elevation in the form of a public roof plaza. The proximities of the programmatic massing seeked refuge in tilted modules that embrace the surrounding views. Elements of screening , such as gabion walls, were also essential in filtering in light into the office spaces whilst still maintaining and respecting the privacy of the hotels’ residents .

Diyar Town Centre In the Islamic culture and tradition, markets have always played an integral role within the society. They are viewed as points of trade, socialising hubs and points of exchange of conversation, knowledge and even poetry. Markets within the region extend far beyond the everyday task of purchasing and acquiring goods. It is within these roots that DIYAR TOWN CENTRE draws its inspiration, to establish an identity and create its own tales.

Souq Alkabeer Just like Dubai, this project is a meeting point of the old and the new. The old in its Souq program with its hustle and bustle merged with the new technologies of a modern building that is situated in the modern peninsula of Dubai. The Souq is grounding this project with its podium, of which, two medium rise towers protrude to form a 150-bed 4 star hotel along with a serviced apartments complex. Both with their own separate amenities and corresponding program. The project utilises local materials such as basket-weaving for its facade treatment. The innovative use of local material is truly the perfect combination of nostalgia and contextual architectural advancement. /// ROLE . graduate design architect /// research - concept development

Native HQ Scattered across the Omani landscape, massive forts stand the test of time as a symbol of what once was. Reinterpreting the interlocking volumes of a fort to complement the 21st century cityscape allowed the building to divide its spaces while giving off a stance of weight and authority. Traditional Omani architecture and Islamic has been influenced by the continuous scuffle between the public and private space. Coupled with courtyards and Mashrabiyas, Native is able to seamlessly separate the building’s executive quarters from the rest of its commercial areas. /// ROLE . junior architect /// research + concept development - schematic design

Alsofouh Residential Development Located in the heart of new Dubai and overlooking Dubai’s man-made wonder; the Palm Jumeirah. The Sofouh tower breaks the ground of Alsofouh as it attempts to capture the fluidity of the overlooking gulf into its aesthetic. Drawing insight from the richness of its context; the project draws itself within its iconic and modern spectacle.

Dubai Islamic Bank DIB HQ sits as a timeless masterpiece amongst the Dubai skyline as a modest connection between the business hub and the old town. Derived by an efficient and iconic form which is representing a desire for the building to be a connection between the old town and its new business centre. The facade literally pixilates and obstructs certain views whilst it frames and directs your view, using the same pixilation technique. The tower obstructs and blurs out the view towards the houses of the old town and yet it frames the view axis towards Burj khalifa and surrounding parks. /// ROLE . project design architect /// research - concept development

The dialogue is outlined further on the vertical axis as the breaking points within the forceful twists of the towers are traced and interlaced to form a structural exoskeleton to further enrich the monolithic character of the project and its use a multiplex icon of the new Erbil city center /// ROLE . graduate design architect /// research - concept development

C5 Residential development This tower draws inspiration from its proximity to water as it combines a highly efficient and typical floor plate with the movement and constantly changing nature of a water wave. The peripheral treatment of projected balconies; breaks the monotonous nature of a mid-level residential tower and introduces a seamless notion of movements and energy across the building’s mass.

Sao Paolo Favelas - Low Cost Housing Poverty can be permanently eradicated if society as a whole recognizes poverty as priority and actively works towards overcoming it. As architects, we play a major role in this dilemma as we start practicing in the modern setting of our profession. With the above in mind, I have joint forces with monyati organization and along with the funding of Etihad airways in order help build six prefabricated houses across the period of two weeks in June of 2014 in one of the world’s most notorious slums. Aiding multiple families and reestablishing households through the use of simple architectural ingenuity in the form of prefabricated 1000 USD units which could be assembled across three days with a team of four to six people. /// featured on etihad in-flight magazine. 2014 .

Metropolis of the Afterlife Dubai’s commitment to addressing the detrimental effects of the car on cities provides opportunities to reconsider how sites dominated by automobiles can be used in the future to create an infrastructure for a new “commons” intended to reintroduce nature into urban environments that have been previously dominated by paved surfaces. In order to deal with the complexities arising from the lifecycles of goods in cities, this project proposes a vertical pod-based columbarium for the cars that will no longer be necessary in the future city. Expanding upward with increasing need, automobiles will be recycled and re-purposed to provide amenities for diverse communities to come together in ways that were not previously possible. /// exhibited in the Seoul Biennale of architecture and urbanism 2017 . one of nine projects representing Dubai

Thankful Contemplations plays on turning the spectator into an essential component of the piece. The reflective glass panelling hides intricate calligraphy of the martyrs names which increase in visibility as one stands in front of the glass and casts his/her shadow on it. Along with names appearing clearer; the spectator at this point is seeing his/her own reflections interlaced by the names of those who sacrificed themselves for him/her and for this country. All in an attempt to realize that you (the spectator) are only here because of those heroes on the other side. /// touring exhibition - proud expressions- across UAE

Merge . Ras Alkhor Wildlife Sanctuary The basic tenet of this research begins with the love of nature to instill the artistic passion into the form of environment, to create outside/inside design, which integrates nature and art into visitors’ lives by using available sustainable design practices. The site energy and forces offer clues to the creation of a tranquil realm where man and nature can coexist and feed on each other in harmony. It allows to develop a subliminal refuge that has a combination of exceptional aesthetic value with a level of environmentally sustainable measures that assure as a model of how to build a unique place in the 21st century, a sanctuary where the visitors to enter a remarkable, environmentally advanced place nestled into the edge of existing wetland without projecting above and beyond the existing vegetation, except for a camouflaged space for bird lookout and casual quiet setting areas. Inside and under, visitors should be able to experience an unfolding series of panoramic views, delighting the eye in every season and drawing the imagination deeper into the lagoon, sky, and flora and fauna. /// open-call international competition . finalist /// published in land art generator book the time is now: public art of the sustainable city

Interactive Contemplations Desire and imagination permeate poetic imagery of the ideology of this project. This systematic narrative is a depiction of an infrastructural installation that portrays a sufficient desire of coexistence and coherence amid communities of the contemporary world. This process is derived from none but an analysis and deconstruction of lines of movement of various prayers and rituals that are performed by people of various beliefs. These lines convey a striking amount of harmony and intertwining formal quality that I have captured in the form of hybrids of frozen extrusions. The analysis of these hybrids grew into datum of traced nodes of movements, eye sight and voice mappings. To form a library of captured data that deconstructs the act of a ritual into infrastructural hybrids.

This project finds itself on the hinterlands of nowhere, on the marginal shores of space as it functions as a series of healing pods; a retreat of a different nature. A space of interactive contemplation in which the body, the architecture and the nature merge into a monastery hybrid in this systematic narrative. /// winner of Sheikha Manal young artist award . 2012 /// feature in 181 magazine .
