Design Portfolio for Masters

A lot has happened since 2013, my last portfolio, so I had to essentially start from scratch, take a few projects form the previous portfolio, and add a lot of new ones, including a freelance art & design section and a practice section.

This portfolio was used to apply for a Masters of Architecture & Urban Design at various schools, and I was admitted to:

Columbia GSAPP [MSAUD]

ETH Zurich [MAS ETH UD]

TU Delft [Post-EMU]

UC Berkely [MUD]

London School of Economics [MSc CDSS]

National University of Singapore [MUD]

Interesting Acoustic Wall

I found this acoustic wall by Noshin Khan to be very beautiful, very creative use of material. I just wonder if a proper acoustic study has been done to test its success since steel sheet isn’t recognized as a good acoustic material. Maybe the folds in the beautifully complex form enforce the deflection of sound and stop it from passing to the other side of the wall, which would be very impressive. If it’s still up in AUS I would love to go see it in person!

 

The Nature of Space – Brazil to Kuwait | Talk at CAP May 11th 2016

During the period of the exhibition curated by myself, Antonio Da Silva and Ruth Jones, Antonio and I gave a talk in the gallery about two main topics: 1| The journey of the exhibition, how it began by Antonio inviting artists to exhibit in a gallery in Porto Alegre, Brazil and how it came to Kuwait and grew as an exhibition. 2| The relationship between art and architecture and how it relates to each artist in the exhibition since a quarter of them are architects and the remaining artists have a strong relationship with space. This was opened up for debate at the end which ended up being a very lively discussion between artists, architects, students, and other professionals such as business managers at oil companies, it was interesting to hear all the strong opinions about whether architecture is a form of fine art or not and how each of them had validity.
