ON[FED] _ VERTICAL EROSION Prof. Faysal Tabbara Spring 2016 In collaboration with Alia Hesham

Our proposal comprises of a vertical botanical garden and private residence for a botanist, located in the deserts of Mleiha. Our response to the studio brief of creating an almost natural architectural condition is through creating a single material system that allows for both precise and platonic spaces and forms as well as rough and highly textured ones. Organization + Structure The project is organized along 6 structural parallel walls made out of prefabricated concrete blocks. The block fabrication process allows for both smooth interiors and textured heterogeneous exterior surfaces. This relationship is not very binary, as one condition can migrate to the other. Erosion + Porosity The idea of erosions and porosities also allow for natural light to make its way into the interior. The prefab nature of the erosions allow for a controllable output. Formal Decisions The way we made formal decisions relied on a series of material experiments that accelerated erosion in a porous surface. This was then translated into a digital work flow that allowed us to continuously prototype and push the proposal into different directions. The result of this is a vertical monument in the desert that appears to be natural through integrating the roughness of the cacti and the gardens with a highly precise synthetic assembly.

Prof. Ammar Kalo Fall 2015 In collaboration with Dina Samara [pioneers] + Yasmeen Hamouda I Rita Isshak I Reem Fawzy

The studio project aimed to create a textured architectural skin in an innovative way, that allows people to interact with physically and aesthetically. The projects started with a series of experiments conducted by myself and my colleague Dina; using hot wax and ice. The interesting relationship between these two non-homogeneous materials, the unique behavior that results from the heat transfer and their recyclable characteristic inspired us.

No. 05 Hot wax on ice block

No. 06 Hot wax on cold water Made with air pump

A physical work flow that focused on analyzing the materials behaviors at different temperatures, states [ wax on ice , wax on water, water on wax ], application methods [linear , spiral, radial, multiple points ] and curvatures led to refining the final method.

No. 03 Hot wax on cylindrical ice cubes Concrete cast of mold No. 39 Cold water on hot wax Made with hose on center for radial organization No. 18 Hot wax on ice blocks

No. 23 Cold water on hot wax Poured with a syringe

No. 34 Cold water on hot wax Wax at 55C

No. 22 Hot wax on cold water 1 point at corner

Entering the final production phase, two 1500 x 80 cm panels were required. Forming a bigger group, we chose the method of pouring cold water on the hot wax, we were able to maintain the desired form of the wax mold and the linear secondary details on it that represent the heat transfer between the two materials. Later on the wax mold were casted to reveal the final GRC panels. The two panels were mounted with 4 other panels on a steel structure to be part of a totem that represents the 3 chosen projects from the studio.

CONCRETE BULBS by Waxbusters Amman Design Week 2016

Participations post graduation: Inspired by the relationship between two non-homogeneous materials, Concrete Bulbs is a limited edition set of concrete panels in 4 parts. It is an exploration of emergent material patterns and 3D manufactured surface conditions. The bulbous textures are a result of a process by which hot liquid wax is cooled down rapidly with iced water. All the wax molds used for the project are melted to create new panels after casting, resulting in unique patterns on every piece. Each panel is 40 x 40 cm2

Exhibited at The Hanger_ Ras Al Ain http://www.ammandesignweek.com • & at SIKKA Art Fair_ Bastakiya Dubai •


WORK I EXHIBIT Prof. Daniel Chavez Spring 2014

This studio focused on the structural expression in architecture to achieve formal aesthetics. The project is an exploration of the Umbrella-Structure to design a workshop and a gallery space for a furniture designer. A visual connection between the workshop, the gallery and the surrounding environment is maintained by using glass facades. This enhances the visitors’ experience by allowing them to be part of both the process and the final product.

FORMALIZED LANDSCAPE .MEDIATHEQUE Prof. Christine Yogiaman Fall 2013

The concept of the public space in my project revolves around the idea of formalizing a common activity among the people living in this residential area. I was curious about the spontaneous and informal activity which is claiming a space by carrying and placing personal seats, couches and bicycles along the alleys. This act does not only personalize the corner space as a public domain but also personal if for the owner’s use by extending his personal territory to the public. This activity is not something new. However, people from different cultures tend to personalize a public space by keeping their stuff in it as a way of identifying personal boundaries. For instance, on the beach, in parks, camping and Friday markets. My Project starts from designing a landscape that would encourage and enhance this instinctive acts of moving. Positioned at the corner of an intersection of two axes, the project wishes to constantly define the space through this spontaneous circulation between the public and private boundaries. Therefore, the experiences in the project were designed by using stiff sand as the material to reform the ground in the shape of dunes. These dunes maintained the old circulation in a way that still allows the people to keep the culture of grabbing their couches to the site to have among formalized space. In addition, the experience was carried on to the interior by having the ground pealing up to carry the people through the vertical circulation to the upper floors of the Mediatheque.

SHELTERS’ RENOVATION Prof. George Katodrytis I Prof. Michael Hughes Fall 2014

Jerash Camp suffers from water problems throughout the year, Wwhether it was the flooding issue or the lack of resources. The project works on resolving the water issue and help redirect the rain water into the shelters to make a better use of it. It aims to create a self-sustaining shelter that redirects the rain water and stores it into two storage points for irrigation and domestic uses. The tanks are made from fiberglass to ensure its durability and ease of maintenance.

A family of 10 living in an 8 x 12 shelter need 17 cubic meters of water to cover there daily needs.

The main street in the camp is the lowest point of it.

•

Jerash Camp is located in Jordan.

BRICK WALL

.INHABITATION

Prof. Emily Baker Spring 2013

Inspired by the warm alley ways of Bastakiya [the old Dubai] a public bathing space was designed using traditional building materials that reflect the essence of the area. A 2m x 10m inhabited brick wall sets next to the creek offering the occupants a dual experience. The experience is enhanced by the light perforating through the gradual openings in the walls and the Arish roof, the sound of the waterfall hitting the textured brick walls and the visual experience that the creek delivers. The entry has an automatic water curtain that provides a blurry view to the interior to maintain the privacy of the space. A dry changing area comes second, then the rituals of the space are concluded by a waterfall on a rough wall creating a soothing experience.

AL WADI Prof. Emily Baker Spring 2015

The design proposal is to create a live/work space for a group of glass artists. The project is located at the outskirts of the Sharjah -United Arab Emirates in Al Fayah Desert. The remote nature of the site makes it an ideal escape for the artists away from the fussy lifestyle of the city. It is a cultural hub for the artists to meditate, produce and chase their passion. The project extends across Al Wadi , The Valley; allowing for more privacy. The functions are organized around an elevated platform that connects the various spaces allowing the water to flow underneath in winter. This platform creates a strong axial organization that leads to an outdoor exhibition.

SUBWAY CANOPY Prof. Faysal Tabbara Spring 2013 Software : Autodesk Maya

Each creature in our surrounding nature has a hidden organization system that makes up its unique form. The canopy is a typological manifestation of the organizational system of a Seahorse. Looking at the seahorse skeleton as a starting point and analyzing its linear system and intricate formation; a series of Genes were designed through a generative- synthesis process starting with a simple cube.

Prof. Kenneth Tracy Fall 2013 Software: Grasshopper I MasterCAM Machines: CNC Router I Vacuum Former

The project attempted on designing a textured prototype that aggregates on an architectural surface. Using additive and subtractive fabrication methods, the texture was translated in consideration of three scales; the outline of the unit, the overall surface typology and the surface texture. Inspired by the texture of a Golden-Waxcap, a single asymmetrical hexagonal unit was developed to create several variations when it is rotated during the aggregation. Using a CNC router, this prototype was milled at a scale of 1:1 to generate a mold. This was used in a thermoforming machine to further produce more tiles.

Carrying on with the Golden-Waxcap texture, an egg sized container was designed to store a valuable object. Using Rhino and Magics, a 3D printed jewelery container was produced using a Z-corp printer. A follow up wall mounted model was required to contain the jewelery container. By exploring various fabrication techniques, a chipboard and paper was produced. The main goal of this exercise is to apply the fabrication methods on a product design scale.

Design work.flow

Natura Minima is a concept for creating customized 3D printing bus stops in Dubai. The project is based on a system that encompasses several sheltering forms, populated by minimal surfaces which confer geometrical complexity while minimizing the built area. Each bus stop is designed through an optimization algorithm for strategic material allocation in order to minimize the material usage through a performative perforation. The emergent aesthetic resembles the morphologic intricacy and elegance of natural forms such as the coral typically found in the UAE.
