Hermitage : An Observatory

Academic Work

Year 2018 Studio ARC 502 Instructor Prof. George Katodrytis Location Ras Al Khor, Dubai, UAE Project Type Research Center | Observatory The Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary is a natural gem that lies within the bustling city of Dubai, UAE. Its wetlands are home to tens of thousands of birds that attract bird watchers and researchers all year round. Although three bird hides currently allow visitors to observe the area’s wildlife from afar, further development of the sanctuary is necessary to promote research while sustaining the quality of life for its winged residents.

Model : Early catenary plaster casting.

Collage : Plaster castings derived from mangroves.

Essentially, the proposed bird watching tower aims to question the ability of the tower typology, prevalent in Dubai, to provide shelter for both humans and preexisting wildlife simultaneously.

Process : Early catenary plaster casting.

Process : Casting stages.

The project presents a bird observatory and wetlands research center. It is elevated on a mangrove-like additive structural system which is based on the aggregation of material. Furthermore, the primary structural system carries multiple catenary growths which support the camouflaged pockets hosting the program.

Model : Early catenary plaster casting.

The series of towers distributed across the site intend to obtain minimal footprint and avoid the disturbance of the surrounding ecology. This is achieved by mapping the site sensitivities prior to the placement of these structures. With time, the structure of the observatory would become home to, and promote the growth of, various species of fauna and flora indigenous to the sanctuary. Model : Early catenary plaster casting.

The Noukhada Maritime Museum (Noukhada: ship captain) finds its place on the shores of the Dubai Creek, adjacent to a Dhow construction site. The form of the museum is extracted from studies on the Barnacles found on site and around the hulls of Dhows. The galleries are placed around the exhibited Dhow ship, making it the centerpiece. The design seeks to bring the visitors an experience similar to that being inside the hull of a Dhow. This is achieved by lining the interior with tectonic ribs and wrapping the facade with a perforated skin to filter light into the exhibition spaces. Other programs present in the museum include lecture halls, archive spaces, a library, administration and restaurant.

D1 Species Information

The art of building boats exclusively with wood, which has a long history in the UAE, is in danger of dying out. For centuries, dhows have been the trading lifeline that has linked the Gulf to other countries. It is part of the history and legacy of the UAE, not only as a means of transportation but also symbolically. The dhow stands for a means of living, economy and the connection to the sea. Now, as cities begin to lose connections to their maritime heritage, how can architecture revive an understanding of urban morphology that is rooted in the sea?

1. 3D printing of modules.

Alya Alfahim Mohamed Alahmdani Prathyush Pradeep Yara Manla

With the agenda of exploring additive manufacturing techniques and different 3d printing methodologies, Unit 1 of the AAVS DXB 4.0 focused on creating a 3D printed, aggregate system for mass customised infrastructure. Inspired by the geometrical nature of water molecules, the Crystal Cells water taxi finds itself generated by modules derived from truncated octahedrons. Programmatically, as these modules, or molecules, emerge from water to land, they crystalize into a constellation providing shelter for the users of the water taxi. Experientially, the structure aims to further mimic the affect of these natural occurrences, by providing an underwater experience, achieved through degrees of transparencies generated by perforations.

MEAN*, Middle East Architecture Network designed and built the Audi Innovation Hub in Dubai Design District for Dubai Design Week 2018. Audi commissioned MEAN*, an innovative Dubai-based architecture practice, to design the Hub to reflect their brand ethos of “ Vorsprung durch Technik ” or Advancement through Technology and to reflect the theme of this year’s Audi Design Award; 'Connections'. Starting with a line - the simplest geometry used to connect two bodies - MEAN* envisaged a curved structure sweeping in space, bridging exterior and interior spaces, woven with connecting lines. MEAN* worked with generative design tools and digital manufacturing as well as aluminum, galvanized steel, tensile cables and recycled rubber from car tires to build the structure as a spatial innovation apparatus that pushes the boundaries of structural and architectural design. The CNC-bent

steel pipe structural elements provide a guided path for tensile cables to connect through, generating a volumetric space as well as adding to the synergetic structural hybrid. These straight lines rotate through weaving, overlapping and connecting to generate an animated effect of streamlined dynamism, expressed through the overlapping of the lines, commonly known as the 'Moire´' Effect'. The intention is to provoke the animated experience of a road trip, as the visitor walks around the pavilion. The design features a symmetrical architectural and structural layout that recalls the balanced nature of the contemporary automobile. The mechanically fixed structure is identical on both halves of the central symmetry line, for ease of fabrication, assembly and reassembly. The central spine of the space features an arched covering, fitted with generative lighting patterns that resemble symmetrical constellations. The brightly lit, digitally manufactured structure, is a white contrast to the black matte rubber surface manufactured and supplied by Bee’ah, which covers the façade of the structure. The material, made from reconstituted vehicle tires, has been recycled into an environmentally conscious building material. Fitted with a space for the latest Audi A7 to be showcased, an area for talks as well as a space for refreshment and gathering. The space provided the venue for the week-long program of Audi Innovation Talks, showcase space for two of the latest Audi models and the winner of the annual Audi Innovation Award.

The original form of the factory is carried out through the site to provide the district with exhibition spaces, performance halls, a library, restaurant, artists’ residences and offices, and various other functions. The form of the colorful shading structure is derived from the Miriñaque, a stiffened or structured petticoat designed to hold out a woman’s skirt, popular at various times since the mid-19th century. These designs were then translated into a translucent shading structure that spans across the entire site and casts colorful shadows on the site.

Prosthetics of Nature

Academic Work

Year 2016 Studio ARC 401 Instructor Prof. George Katodrytis Location Hatta, UAE Project Type Water Research Center The project started out as a narrative of a character found in the streets and markets of Dubai. As markets are considered to be spaces of production and consumption, they seemed to provide endless opportunities of catalysts that could inspire the project. In the case of this project, water was seen as the primary source of life when it came to market places in the urban context of a city. This interest in water was then carried out into the picturesque countryside and further developed into a program which housed both the lab and residence of a water researcher.

Collage : Model against site.

The project is a water research institute in which the users get to live and exhibit their work. The site of the project lies within the valleys surrounding the Hatta Dam in Hatta, UAE. Not only is the site a perfect location for a researcher’s retreat, but it most importantly serves the main catalyst of this project; water.

Process : sketch.

Process : Paper models.

The concept was driven by the urge to learn in depth about the organic process of water in nature while being surrounded by the subject of research itself. When the architecture is in sync with the environment, it becomes a living organism that undergoes the same seasonal changes just like any other element of its surrounding. It is activated by all the environmental factors and transformations so that the subject of research becomes the most essential factor of life to the project, which in this case is water. After Analyzing the site and setting a catalyst for the project, a series of material explorations took place in order to study how different materials reacted to one another and eventually developed a certain form which was able to adapt to the specified location/site.

Joe’s Cafe 1.0

Professional Work

Year 2018 Client MAF | Majid Al Futtaim Group Location The Avenues Bahrain, Bahrain Area 150 m2 Project Type Restaurant Artwork | Mural Hush Artist The Joseph fashion brand and retail chain was established in London by Joseph Ettedgui. Renowned for his eccentric personality, Joseph opened Joe’s café soon after as an extension of his creative concept: a place where a vibrant and eclectic crowd of the fashion industry’s most interesting icons gathered to share ideas and inspiration outside of the constraints of an office. The concept behind the 1st Joe’s Cafe in Bahrain is a runway-like transition from the bustling city life to a serene, garden-like space. The space is divided into 3 zones, each providing a completely different experience. Zone 1 is a laid-back bar area where a live saxophone performance takes place regularly at sunset. Zone 2 has a lively runway feel to it, and focuses on juxtapositions such as light/dark and movement/rest. Zone 3 takes advantage of natural lighting to create a serene, garden inspired, setting. The focus here is drawn to a central tree and a mural by Hush Artist depicting two Bahraini women.

Year 2015 Studio ARC 301 Instructor Prof. Marcus Farr Location Muwaileh, Sharjah, UAE Project Type Community Center Most areas of the Muwaileh community in Sharjah are still under construction, and providing shade for these low-rise buildings is a necessity. The Muwaileh Community Center focuses on drawing in all members of the community in through its skin, which wraps around the entire site. It starts as window louvers then morphs to become a wall texture and eventually a shading structure for the outdoor gathering communal area. The programs include a performance hall, exhibition space, cafe, arts center, library, study rooms, offices, and outdoor theatre.

The idea is to create a very open space under a diagrid roof structure, and make the class rooms act as islands suspended in space. This transparency allows for the exchange of ideas between the creatives to build a sense of community between students and faculty. The building hosts programs such as a performance hall, cafe, exhibition spaces, labs, classrooms, offices, and arts store.

The immersive 10 days program, designed by the Pritzker Prize 2017 winners RCR Arquitectes, comes from their philosophy of shared creativity and the value of the essential to reach the universal. It explores the site from a cross disciplinary perspective. With workshops of architecture and landscape, audiovisual and photography, scenography, a dance program and the open program with lectures by experts from different disciplines, it is a laboratory designed to encourage creativity from the experience that is born of a unique place. The exercises are raised around the awakening of the senses, stimulating the creation of spaces that make us experience wanting to touch, listen and be in this place.
