Tribalism in Middle Eastern States: A Twenty-first Century Anachronism?
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]
A great overview of the traveling exhibition in CAP, Kuwait by the art critic Dr. Moayad Hassan published in Al Tashkeel Magazine, Issue 26. pg. 80-83 (english), pg. 40-43 (arabic).
Great study of the beautiful Kunsthaus Bregenz Facade by Peter Zumthor.
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!
