Switch: Office in a bed by Jared Schmale.Jared Schmale's goal is to combine two functions of a small room, bedroom and office, in one unit. Although this is a bedroom and office 2-in-1 design, it actually separates work and sleep by hiding one or the other. This piece fully utilizes a small room without two functions disturbing each other.i like th idea of this 2 functions ...lets see how to do such a thing in our project

Prefabricated Emergency Shelter by Alexis Smith.Alexis Smith's deployable shelter is a product of a thoughtful and careful design process. It's a light-weight shelter that requires minimum instruction to assemble. It's easy to clean in between uses. It collapses for easy transportation. Better yet, it's customizable, allowing for individual identity.


REAL IDEAS are born of real HUMAN NEEDS

hey ..everyone check this site (inhabitat)

Currently one in seven people in the world lives in a slum or refugee camp, and more than 3 billion people - nearly half the world’s population - do not have access to clean drinking water or adequate sanitation.

Monday visit to cairo

hi everyone,

2. Elharranya, Wissa Wassef Art Center

3. Bait El seheemy, El-Moezz st., El-Hussien, and Al-Azhar Park
Example for climatic and cultural adaptation in Islamic architecture

p.s.(the locations that we will be concerned with and focus on in our analysis is in red color)

persons that will meet us there (inshaallah) are:
Gamal Amer - architect
Akram Elmagdoob - architect
Adam henein - artist
