Portfolio of the day
Who are you?
I am a Syrian-American Architect based in Chicago, Illinois, USA. I studied and practised architecture in three continents (Asia in the Middle East, Europe in Great Britain, and recently North America in the US). I write and publish in the theories of Architecture and my interest concentrates on the physical relationship of site and context, and how architecture can signify the characteristics of its own place. My first book was published last year with Routledge and titled "Site and Composition: Design Strategies in Architecture and Urbanism".
My work focuses on the reciprocal relationship between architecture and its surrounding milieu with sensitivity to natural light, circulation pattern, and materiality.
What is your next creative project?
My next project is an experimental case study that re-imagine the typical on Chicago block which implements some urban concepts that enhance and leverage the urban life in a more integral holistic approach. Nothing embodied in drawings and images yet except for three rendering visuals that are posted on my website.Visit site
