ABOUT ME

LANGUAGE SKILLS

I am a passionate Urban Designer with Architecture background with 6 years of diverse professional experience teaching and practicing Architecture and urban design. I have a bachelor degree in Architecture Engineeringon Cairo in (2008) and Masters degree in urban design from Politecnico Di Milano (2012). My thirst to learn from different environments has lead to me to develop professional experiences working in Cairo, Milan, Berlin and most recently in Dubai before arriving to London earlier this year. Through my academic studies and diversified professional career, I established a well-rounded knowledge with different Urban and Architectural scales with a focus on residential and mixed-use urban developments. I currently live and work in London as a senior Architect and team Leader for the award winning practice Design International on a range of international projects focusing on retail Architecture and Mixed-use developments.

The area of ​​the former ABB is one of the three major areas of transformation currently taking place in the city of Lodi. Of these three areas, the former ABB is the only one adjacent to the railway station, as well as close to the historical center of the city, hence it holds the potential of becoming an important new centre dedicated to housing in the city. Rethinking the former ABB area as a place of dwelling where favouring a concentration of density, typical of city centers, thereby limiting the occupation of the ground to make room for open spaces, green areas, a public character. The intermediate space between the houses you can then use to a micro-network of open spaces and natural diffused: it can accommodate a system of green dedicated to bike and play areas for children, as well as some recreational facilities and leisure.

AXONOMETRIC VIEW FOR PROPOSED REFURBISHMENT INTERVENTION The proposed park on the shops Island roof is to replace the existing redundant mechanical space and help connect the two ends of the first floor in the shopping mall bringing in an urban street and park on top of it intriducing a whole new image and identity to one od the most visited shoping malls in Tuscany and Italy.

Mapping the footprint of the building according to surrounding urban block. Use of the green park (existing) to create an interval between the road and the building.

The transversal line changes conditions within signing into the public space, changing the form within the building and ending towards the mountain line. The height of the building is therefore raised than the surrounding building to terminate visually to Ahn mountain.

The form of the line creates the governing section of the building that creates volumes and views, both exterior and interior, for a quality interiorized public space.

A city seeking a foundation of learning and knowledge in its social sphere invests in community life and its people as the human capital, tapping this inherent potential as an opportunity to put forward the path of change. The city with such aspirations focuses on an invisible separation that lies between the realm of architecture and the public domain. It is here where learning cultivates. An architecture that celebrates communal and collective values. A ‘container’ where urban functions collide with fluxes of nature generating an ‘intelligent’ space acting as incubator for thinking individuals. Such spaces are institutions of which only libraries are now the last vestige of interiorized public space of the city. The evolution of the library inclined more to the public space of appearance ensures its dependence on the changes in socio-environmental conditions. An evolution reflecting change and an ever seeking pursuit for the eternal utopia. A public space not enforced but that encourages participation. With a precedence to natural setting as an important criteria in Korean architecture, the idea of a library gains permanence by its urbanistic dimension to innovate and introduce a new form in the permanent landscape of the city. The integration with this setting is the READING BETWEEN LINES .

Colonial Delhi

Modern Delhi

Contemporary Delhi


An agrarian economy. An inception of its new colonial capital. It’s 100 years now since New Delhi has celebrated itself as the capital of pre and post independence era. It was thoughtfully conceived as a tabula rasa based on the utopian idea of Ebenzer Howard’s Garden city concept (1898). It was envisaged as a self contained town. Contrary to the Old Dilli, wide open streets and lush green open spaces with buildings reflecting authority and colonial power were laid out. However, while implanting the concept of Garden city, the British missed out on social and economic factors that one can easily identify and see in the by lanes of Old Dilli. The experiential dimension of a specific place, interpersonal public spaces cultivating culture and exchange; the human scale of the interlocking streets, the blushing everyday life rendered over a neutral urban landscape; a sample of Indian city life. NExT investigates within the architectural domain, the genetic code of the urban block set in Lutyens’ New Delhi that can infuse the potential nature of agrarian India as an answer to Indian agro-urban life. A hybrid typology of a building hinted through the factual history for a promising and sustainable future.

AN INCEPTION OF A COLONIAL CITY

LAND PARCELLING AND UNIT CONFIGURATIONS house

open The introvert character of the block is obtained by removal of a heavy mass which transforms as the inner street connecting the entire mass.

Bigha is a traditional unit measurement of area of land used in Northern India. Each Bigha is essentially divided into smaller units known as Biswas with an area of 125 m2 each. Every family in the horizontal farm gets its Biswas, the basic generic component for housing. Each Biswas (10m x 12.5m x 3m) is composed of three thematic spaces: the house (covered), the extension space (semi-open) and the farm (open). The flexibility with these 3 components results into four different typologies which further are vertically stacked keeping in mind the bioclimatic parameters of the semi arid climate of Delhi, neighbour to neighbour interaction and

Project published in Architecture Update magazine in India , Issue August , 2014

THE NEXT CITY NExT entraps the potential of slum as a settlement and its available human resource into creating a hybrid city -living- farmland typology, an environment familiar to its denizens, one that can coexist and contribute to the food grid of the city as well as its existing participatory nature with the tertiary sector. A prototype revitalizing slum land into something NExT which cultivates India and its cultural roots, an autonomous self sustained farm based eco-city easily multiplying as a counter sprawl within limits.
