First Steps into Architectural Design
Project: Designing a Restaurant Year: Second year, first semester 2012 Location: Dead sea
Location of the site
The site is located in Dead sea. The dead sea is a geologic fault a l e f t l a t e r a l transform fault .
This movement caused the Dead sea rift, it also created different levels in land surfaces.
It runs along the two tectonic plates, the African plate and the Arabian plate. The two move in the s a m e d i re c t i o n , but one is faster than the other
My concept is inspired from the result of this movement, the rift! Taking the void of this rift, created the main masses in my design.
Functions in the bigger mass: shaded terrace, kitchen and services. The smaller mass is a dinning hall. The space in between is a linking place. A shared function for all users like a bar.

Royal Film Commission Documentation
Project: Royal Film Commission Documentation Year: Second Year, Second Semester Location: Jabal Amman, Rainbow street
Group work with: Boran Amro, Dana Al-Taher, Reem Hamdan And Yasmin Al-Qasrawi
RFC Royal Film Commissionâ€™s Building. an old Ammani villa built in 1919 in one of the oldest parts of the city, was turned into Jordanâ€™s first film commission . It was established with a vision to develop an internationally competitive Jordanian film industry.
The Maze of â€˜Al-Baladâ€™
Project: Mixed use commercial building Year: Second year, second semester, 2012 Location: Amman city center
The main inspiration for this project were the old Ammani neighbor hoods, (Jabal Amman, Jabal al-wabde.) Variety in the sizes of corridors narrow, medium and some wide. Also the endless number of stairs connecting the spaces all these horizontal and vertical circulation paths, created what looked like a MAZE. So what I decided to do is to take these characteristics and utilize them in a positive way, and connect them to some of the main cultural features in the site. Creating a sequential experience.
The pattern of this maze is taken from top view of the area of my site, around the Roman theater.
As in any maze thereâ€™s a court / open space in the middle, connects everything. All the functions lead to this court and the use can get to all the functions form there

Project: Herbs shop design Year: Second year, second semester 2013
HERBS is a shop for herbs located in a mixed use complex in Amman’s down town. I choose Herbs because it’s something you want to see in the old down town. My design is a mix between the old herbs shops and a more contemporary shop.
This stand is the casher place and it is also a show table

The Dwellings of ‘Jabal Amman’
Project: Dwellings Year: Third Year, first semester 2014
The site is located in the heart of Amman, viewing the Citadel. It’s in the old historical part of the city. Holding in it’s significant lots of values to the old city, Amman The program: • • • • •
12 Medium units 120 sqm 10 Small units 80 sqm 8 Large units 160 sqm Small Garden for planting Small market 100 sqm
Following the Contours Step 1 Abstrac-ng the contour lines, into straight lines
Step 2 Choosing the view angle
Step 6 Interpola-on. By interpola-ng the exis-ng points crea-ng new points to create the third plaEorm Step 7 Three plaEorms, where func-ons to be distributed
Step 3 Organizing the contour lines, and adjust them
Step 4 Pu<ng the view lines on the contours
Step 5 Two plaEorms resul-ng from the intersec-on between the contours and views line
Moving the users according to their needs A N e r f o l l o w i n g t h e contours to get the most suitable loca-on on the site (minimizing the cut and ﬁll process), the massing inside these plaEorm will be according to the user needs

The Perplexed Canopy
Project: Parametric Canopy for GJU Year: Third year, first semester 2013 Location: GJU campus Group work with: Zaid Zaubi, Saif Mahfoz and Yazeed balqar
The Idea is to create a unique
canopy for the stairway in our University. The canopy will be acting as a shielding, protection element and an attractive point. Creating a surface with a form withstanding the weather conditions along the ability of being manufactured. To be built in reality.
Voronoi Within Voronoi
Project: Wall Design Year: Third Year, first semester 2014 Group work with: Yasmin Al-Qasrawi, Petra Saudi
The idea is to create a multi
functional partition where it works a partition separating between spaces, and a bookshelf at the same time. t h e Vo r o n o i s h a p e w a s chosen because the Voronoi gives the distribution for the loads and the lights. It is also inspired from nature, where you can see all the Voronoi patterns in each different part.
Step one Creating the bigger frame which is the big Voronoi
Step two Creating a smaller voronoi within each frame (voronoi)
Step three extruding the s m a l l e r Vo r o n o i a s wanted
