  2. 2. Located in a very distinct district in The Jordanian Capital, Jabal Al Waibdeh “Mount Waibdeh” is one of the oldest inhibited areas in the history of Amman, the Coffee place was chosen to have a very deconstructionist and provocative look in order to make it stand out from the crowed of traditional J o r d a n i a n a r c h i t e c t u r e p r e s e n t i n t h e a r e a The narrow voids linking between buildings are interlocking at different points, these points allow activity to transform and change so it is reflecting the motion of cars and pedestrians withinthatarea. Thebuildingsevolvedovertimeinanarithmeticwayinaseries of1to2levels,theregulationschangedtoallow3,ormore. This growth in length is equal to the change in time, and the continuity and flawlessness of time induces us to think of 1 continuous structure such as a folded structure. When observing the area's skyline of the nearby buildings, each level of the surroundings, can be combined and compressed into a multilevel structure, thus creating a folded sectional grid, jumping in and about 6 levels, each levelrepresentsachange infunctionality. ProjectConceptualization Change in building height = change in time 1 2 3 4 5.... The section shows the sequential jump of levels from number 1 “ The entrance” to number 6 “ The gallery” Notice the ramp leading towards the reading areas which in turn shifts level to the inclined book shelves which is on the same level then shifts levels by rampstowardstheterrace. Notice how the exhibition space is created by the void and the hangingartworkthatcanbeseenfromallaroundthebuilding. The Inclining Book Shelf 3 Reading Area 2 Entrance 1Transformation 5 Terrace 4 Gallery 6 SectionA-A This plan shows the small entrance area, it was designed in this manner to allow for security measures, a ramp follows to take the users to another level hence a change of functionality towards an ordering counter and a setting area, the area views a gallery below from the void and a view towards the outside, the right part of the plan shows another setting area that leads to inclined book shelves. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1. 2. ,3. ,4. 5. ,6.Main Entrance Inclining Ramp Prep.

The ability to store more books on an inclined bended slab is of vital importance to the projects economical survival, angular walls allow for easy leveling, thus a ramp was created that crosses one level of bookshelves right onto another level, and up towards another rampthatleadstotheoutsideterraces.

Computer History MuseumA t h i r d y e a r p r o j e c t ProjectConceptualization To conceptualize the design; since the functional requirements of a museum are quite limited, it was easy to symbolize the conception to include chips eachcomprisinganarchitecturalprogram,thusbeing analogous to the machine language of a computer, with interconnecting paths forming an analogous circulation pattern, which introduces a sequential programming of the visitor as he passes through the so called units. The Sketches show the primary formation of the spaces in elevation form , it is clear how the auditorium space is buried underneath and the rest of the museum is composed of interconnected spaces that overlap each other and areconnected.

A Healing Theater Theprojectdealswithmanydesignaspects,focusingprimarily on the subject of evidence based design EBD, the project included a variety of healthcare design ideas incorporated and integrated into this building to produce a fully functional, patientrewardingandvisitorfriendlyexperience. In its essence the and theplacebo pill effect interactionbetweenthebodyand the mind was of major importance, hence this evidence based healing environment. This healing environment must reflect a positive working environment for the doctors also, hence the creation of this experience based economy overruns the service based economy. This kind of economy (experienced based is now leading the market e.g branding), for that the creation of a memorable experience makes people place a higher value on it (this is known as scripting the experience), for an experience is basically the knowledge, occurrence and the feelings that takes place, and so making this project as a healing stage was themajorconcept.

  10. 10. Schematic and Conceptual Design for Le - Meridian Hotel Extension in Amman Jordan, this included proposals for various options with schematic plans, elevations,3d models and rendered images. Instructors: DR. SALIM AL FAQIH The concept was developed as a direct relationship between the site analysis results and the client's needs. The project emerged as a transparent building allowing for the maximum useofdaylight andthestunning viewsofthesite.Theexterior façades represent a dynamic transition between the surrounding buildings to a building that suites its location as a high-techlandmarkforthe21stcentury. Influenced by the Fiberglass reinforced concrete cladding style of the 1960s Iskan's commercial building, the bands of GRC sequentially open up in dynamic steps to reveal more daylight and views. This corresponds to the clients' needs of more ample daylight and views that were not present in the nearby Meridian and the Iskan building. The location of the GRC used in the building is located in the northern elevation of the building that is by nature lacking in natural daylight and isfacingtheoldbuildings,facadesthusblockinganyviews. These GRC steps open up slowly towards the north, thus providing necessary shading during summer daylight when the sun is almost perpendicular to the building and is strongest in the northeastern and northwestern parts of the sky during the morning and evening. The GRC panels lose their influence towards the south elevation to allow for natural daylight to enter during winter times when the sun is lowest in the sky and tends to be present more in the south. The southern elevation is however treated with high tech shading devices that can block the sun completely in the summer whenneeded.

The glass in the building was designed to be of transparent LOW e glazing with low reflectance, this reduces glare to the surrounding Shmesani residential area and maintains a beautiful exterior connectivity from inside to outside providing amorewelcomingexperience. The building uses floor landscaping in various areas, unlike the landscaping treatment in the ISKAN commercial building that represented a fungi problem in the flooring treatment. The landscaping in this building is based upon HYDROPONICS where soil is not present and the rate of growth of greenery is multiplied. The trees represent shading, increase the real estate value of the building and allow for noise reduction and cancellation from the surrounding highway streets. The mixture of glass, greenery and WOODPLASTIC composites in the elevations allows for a theme rarely present in the country and is suitable to be represented as a new Icon as the Iskan commercial building wasinthepast.

  12. 12. Building Information Modeling (BIM) and architectural design, including coordination with other engineering disciplines, and preparation of specifications and other technical design documents, for Al Madina Convention Center, Al Madina Al Munawa, Saudi Arabia, Instructors: DR. SALIM AL FAQIH Detailed design and supervision of construction for a 4-storey convention center (including a basement level) on a site area of 91,000 m². The project consists of a main convention theater for 2,500 persons, 2 large exhibition halls, 3 multi- purpose halls, meeting rooms, business center, economic and media center, service and landscaped areas. Parking spaces for 2,100 cars are provided at both the basement and groundlevels.Totalbuilt-uparea:40,405m². Upon Request of the Saudi government the design language was reminiscent of that used in Makah, it is evident how governmental buildings use this architectural language to represent themselfs. A new introduction of roof screens and Kufi font writing on were introduced to the language, the Kufi fontisilluminatedwithLED lightduringnighttime. The design passed through a long proposal phase before getting into the final image, many sub-consultants participated in the design process including interior designers andacousticdesignfortheconventionhalls.

F Urban design proposal of a complex of 135 residential and commercial towers to allow room for pilgrims in Makah during pilgrimage season. The design included the design of 9 tower types with variations, with various podium designs to incorporate streets and parking, and other vital facilitates, podium floor areas where between 2000 to 3000 m², tower floor areas ranged from 1000 m² to 3000 m² with 15 to 25 floors per tower, giving a total builtupareaofaround5.3millionm². The urban design took the views towards the Kabah in consideration, this how many towers were massed for maximumexposuretowardstheHaram. The client this time was more open minded to use a modernized Islamic architecture but with a hint of Maka’sLocalarchitecture. TheBuildingopeningsandplansfolloweda3.8mby3.8 grid, this grid was reflected on everything from tower proportions, floor heights, windows, columns and other typicalunits. Islamic patterned screens and abstract Islamic arabesque were used to promote the modern architectural feel of the project.
