[dis]tant [connect]ions A meditation creative center located on the banks of the Yarmouk River, this project creates a point of spirituality that can promote possibilities and inspire hope. Through a spacial journey, the user leaves the mental rails behind and instead reflects on how what has happened in the present, the here and now can fuel creativity. Thereby bringing the product of that creativity back into society for its growth and benefit.
RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN MEDITATION CRACK AND CREATIVITY AXIS

the lego t o w e r s A collaborative project with Saraaâ€™ AlOmari. Through the use of sustainable methods and the basic concept of stacking and falling lego pieces. The lego towers served to be the main attraction point to the master plan introduced ahead.
the lego masterplan A collaborative project with Saraaâ€™ Alomari, Reem Obeidat, and Nardeen Twal, the lego masterplan introduces a brand based sustainable eco-system.
livening the heart of irbid A multiple phase project with the initial phase being a collaboration with Hassan ZainAlDein, Ibrahim Mardini, and Amro Alnimri thatâ€™s objective was to redesign and rehabillitate downtown Irbid using the least Intrusive methods
The following phase was individual. A cultural connector between 3 socially active areas was introduced by retiling and redoing the facades of two pedestrian streets and renovating and re-using the â€œJumaa Houseâ€? as a cultural space.
The original â€œJumaa Houseâ€? facades were kept intact as interior changes took place to accomodate new facilities in the abandone landmark.
t e s s e l at i o n e xperiments A scenario of a travelling salesman with need of a movable unit to accomodate his work was introduced, requiring that the unit may be compacted in a 1*1m box with a maximum unit space of 2*3m, and the mechanism for the unit must be inspired by his proffesion. So came the origami man, with the folding gallery and work space
apartment building, irbid Located in the heart of a heaviliy residential area in Irbid, the mixed use apartment building, was to provide a mixture of privacy and transparency to accomodate itâ€™s residence and respect their context. This project was inspired by one of Toyo Itoâ€™s first works, a old people home located in Japan
c u l t u r e h o u s e A culture house to sit in “Fo’ara Plaza” and gently interact with the pre-existing “Nabulsi House”, aiming to re-activate the misused plaza and attract people to one of Irbid’s renovated Ottoman landmarks.
S p i r t u a l r e t r e a t Inspired by Mukkawers natural terrain, this meditation center sits snug in the mountain, cracked by the holiness of light and the direction of Alqibla.
