As a result of its history and expansion from the Eastern part, Tyre is characterized by urban corridors leading from the Northern part to the Southern beach. My goal is to stress on the cultural tourism, encouraging people to understand the city through its spirit and history, using three different sensations: physical, mental and visual.

SITE CHRISTIAN QUARTER

SITE RIVOLI STREET OLD SOUK

The approach is to create a promenade through the corridors of the old city, making it a live outdoor exhibition space, which like a story, will vividly describe the complete historical image and climax in a «New Centrality» or more specifically a tripod of activities: a Hammam, an Archeological Museum, and finally an observation tower which will freeze the city`s moments through its openings on one hand, and act as a monumental light house on the other hand.

Unfortunately, Jounieh is suffering from an apparent failure of the communal infrastructural system that calls out for a new strategic plan which would tackle the current problematics in an efficient manner. on a regional level, the proposal was to create an intermediate elevated tramway in the middle of the highway. this tramway would be elevated about 8 meters from the highway and will have some pedestrians piazzas integrated at an intermediate level of 5 meters. In addition to these piazzas, this pedestrian activity will be further accentuated through shuffling the pedestrians from the highway peripheries towards the adjacent neighborhoods by extruding the commercial highway shops towards them. On a local level, a bus transportation system was implemented in the city.

The design is based upon the spirit of the roman bath which involves socializing in a common open space. The context which happens to be an industrial zone, lead to an introverted approach which plays on the elements of surprise between the exterior and the interior on one hand, and between the circulation and functions of spaces on the other hand.

The central element of the atrium is an aqua zone around which the functions and continuos circulation are distributed. As for the Light, it is filtered to the interior through perforated brick walls and vertical wooden louvers, thus creating a dramatic environment that pulls the project from its context, yet reviving the ghost of the previous hangar.

The floating theater and its performances, aim to embody Leonardo Da Vinci`s dissection of the fetus, where its central position in the womb represents man at the center of the universe. This enduces an «egocentric» unity between people at the state of creation, where they are all equal, hence eradicating the site`s divisive history. this fetus emerging to life from the womb is emulated by the spherical structure of the theater, with a skylight at its top, inspired by the Pantheon. the light emerging from the atrium is directed upon a massive transparent rubber platform filled with water, which is set in motion by performers mounting it, creating dancing like silhouettes above a standing audience. This audience experience rebirth simultaneously by transcending from darkness at the bottom of the sphere, along the rising earth, on a ramp reaching the translucent platform, with the performance above them is coupled with musicians incrusted inside the double skin of the sphere. This biomorphic dream is enhanced further upon exiting the theater to the deck overlooking the washing water and light on the spherical facade.

With the expansion of the Lebanese American University in Blat, Byblos, the city began to expand as well as its needs. So, based on the citizens needs in general, and the students needs in particular the program was decided which mainly consists of a mall, commercial shops, gym, library, and finally a dormatory.

CONCEPTUAL DIAGRAMS

Since the site is a very steep slope terrain, Blatforms was designed in a way to connect to the adjacent street through public horizontal platforms that would enhance the public activity in the area, making the accessibility fluent and welcoming. MASS PLAN

Mar Mikhael, the residential and commercial neighborhood in Beirut, has become the new hub for art, creativity, social interaction, and nightlife... Whilst exploring the contemporary evolution of urban living in this area, different degrees of materialized envelope designs were filtered, regarding them as an interface where culture and history meet both in social arrangement and stylistic expression.

This lead to a noble insertion, ÂŤ The MultiplexÂť, in reference to the complexity of combining different functions including commercial shops, offices, exhibition spaces, hotel, and low cost residential units in a single 500m2 plot, yet managing to have sensitive connections between these private versus public areas.

«DON`T BE AFRAID, JUST TAKE A SEAT.» THIS DESIGN EXPLORES THE BOUNDARY OF CARDBOARD FURNITURE DESIGN. THE CHALLENGE WAS TO HAVE THE CHAIR CARRY A MAXIMUM WEIGHT OF 100KG, KNOWING THAT IT WAS PURELY MADE OF ONLY TWO SHEETS OF 5MM THICKNESS CARDBOARDS, EACH 2MX1M, WITHOUT THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY OTHER MATERIAL SUCH AS GLUE, METAL HINGES, ETC...

0 10 KG

SO, THE STRUCTURE WAS BASICALLY A GRID SYSTEM OF INTERLOCKING CARDBOARDS WHICH IS ALSO FULLY INTERLOCKING WITH THE OUTER CONTINOUS SKIN. WHEN YOU SIT DOWN, THE STRENGTH OF THE HIDDEN STRUCTURE WILL HOLD YOU COMFORTABLY, WHERE YOU CAN ALSO ENJOY READING NEWSPAPERS OR MAGAZINES ROLLED UP INSIDE THE UNDERNEATH STRUCTURE THAT ACTS AS SHELVES.
