  • 5. PrefaceGrowing up in a boxed-in environment in the once suburban-now urban Rakan Ayyoubareas of Amman, I have over the years developed an affirmedconsciousness vis-à-vis the issues of human habitats, the influence ofcertain environments on their behaviors, cultural aspects, and economicgrowth.As I traveled from one location to another, crossing many countries, Ibecame fanatical about drawing at a very young age, and gained anability to express my ideas and visual understanding of the materialoriented world with a pen. I henceforth was constantly searching forsolutions to enhance the human living conditions – generally speakingabout early childhood experimentation with engineering – and merelytalking about my teenage curiosity in general design, I becameincreasingly interested in the search of life improving philosophies.A scarcity driven economy, and an education in some of the best schoolsin Jordan influenced a scientific-earthly, yet an economical approach tomy design process, which during college years, thrived to combine myobsessive perfectionism in functionality with secular aestheticism.

The wave motion of the sea or lake water waves has a special effect on the adaptation of an oyster, each oyster shell has a specific shape to cope with the waves of a specific area in the ocean. Pearls are not necessarily regularly shaped as a sphere, some pearls are totally irregular, this relies on the shape of a parasite.

Publici vLibrary o f a c i t y A library is a place for getting unrestricted information in all media formats, The Conceptual Approach and to provide the means for finding the required information. It is the interaction between the staff, the library system and the users them self. By a deep understanding of the various aspects of a library’s spacial program and the functional relationships between spaces and circulation i c h e a r t patterns of users, staff, books and periodicals a metaphoric concept can thus be developed. As a library is the civic heart of a city we can create an analogy based on a human’s heart anatomy, the human heart is a very complicated and a beautiful machine it is a perfectly assembled genius of function.

Courtyard nRenovationc t A s c h o o l r e o v a t i o n p r o j e The project lies amidst the heart of the school of architecture in the Project Abstract university of Jordan, the central courtyard brings in light, and enables natural ventilation to the surrounding corridors, trees are present as means of shading and evaporative cooling by transpiration during hot summer days, making it a very beautiful and an attractive focal point in the school. Due to the economic situations in the country the courtyard hasn’t received much attention since the early 80s, only some building workshop projects are found in it, and due to prevailing arid weather conditions they are almost unfunctional. Courtyard Renovation A s c h o o l r e n o v a t i o n p r o j e c t We Can’t Neglect the direct relationship between nature and architecture Conceptualization and how the direct relation lies somewhat hidden in the natural unobservable phenomena of the earth. Dr. Ali Abu Ghanemeh One phenomenon is earth’s magnificent magnetic field, the filed lines in the Dr. Nabil Al Kurdi project are directly used as a grid system to produce the architecture and the Instructors: landscaping forms. 13
  • 16. Courtyard nRenovationc t A s c h o o l r e o v a t i o n p r o j ePreliminary Sketches The courtyard can be separated into 4 main zones right and left, and the 2 zones in the center. Through the yard passes 2 circulation bridges for the upper zones of the school. As a basic step towards a useful way to use the courtyard is the satisfaction of lost vital functions in the school, such as a bookshop with printing and plotting services and a coffee shop, to serve sleep deprived architecture students! . To start with placing a certain grid one of the trees was chosen to be the point on which the grid passes through, a central artistic structure was Dr. Ali Abu Ghanemeh designed in order to be focal point, to elicit undesired circulation Dr. Nabil Al Kurdi patterns, and reduce any student traffic congestion especially when Instructors: moving project models from a studio to the other. Grid lines where desired to be the earth main magnetic fields, and are determined by using a simple compass, the lines mainly pass through the tree towards the north, south magnetic, and geographic grids correspondingly. 14

  • 91. The elements called upon earlier are distributed Conceptual Elements I N T E R V E N T I O N between 4 main elements or site elements, the first being the religion, and can be symbolized in the natural rock formations in the site, and the old carvings in the old houses. rocks have a strong attachment in Christianity. The next element is the architectural formations and topology explained earlier, various formations can give rise to site related but novel geometrical formations. The third site element is the structural formations of the architecture already found in the site, they v i s i o n a r y like the traditions of shatana hold a systemized way of living, for without the structure and traditions the genius loci of the place would not exist. The Fourth Element is the characteristic vegetation and nature of the place, they show a Mediterranean appeal, reminiscent to those Greek or Italian villages, a thing that is hard to find Sha ana in the middle east, apart from Lebanon or Syria. The fifth element being the cultural element, a characteristic thing about shatana are the cultural events that take place, the events and festivals show a very hard connection to the sites own cultural values and tries to expose them to the D r . Salim Al Faqih world and region.Instructors: 89
  • 92. The concept works by creating a hybrid between I N T E R V E N T I O NConceptual Layering the various elements, and trying to reveal other elements boldly by juxtapositioning them, to show an inversion of elements or a certain diversion in other places. For example when designing the building we can focus on creating a hybrid between the already present stones in the site and the structural grid in some points, in other points we try to boldly expose the structure, hide is, or boldly expose the stones or hide them etc.. v i s i o n a r y Sha ana D r .

I N T E R V E N T I O N In the village area , as you approach the site, another lot with destroyed old houses shows Village Intervention up, one particular house had no roof, as it was destroyed due to weather and other natural conditions. The house was chosen to erect a minor village exhibition. The walls were left untouched, only minor changes to the doors and windows were made, and on the inside a smaller glass house was constructed with another concrete square wall was built as a room. The walls were used as exhibitions, and the placement of objects within the place was to enable self exploration and amazement and dwell a mixture of feelings for the visitor. v i s i o n a r y The new house’s roof top served as a terrace and a view point for the entire village, this juxtapositioning of stones, glass and metal, leaves the visitor with a strange feeling, and some kind of belonging or not belonging to the actual village, as he approaches the top, a memory of place is conserved in his brain, and this image contradicts the view of shatana that he gets to see on the roof top terrace. The resulting emotions created are a great motive for the visitors approach to the cultural center building to come. Village Exhibition Sha ana D r . Salim Al FaqihInstructors: 93
