CONCEAL AND REVEAL

The two personas inhabiting the space are dancers, a girl, and the absence of her lover. Based on John Hejduk’s notions, the walls convey a directionality to the spaces. Long narrow spaces take the body through time and space in a sequence of spaces and events.
Project 2: From Social to Structure
Karm el Zeitoun is a city of cards. Elements of support help the city to sustain itself and the people to connect. My unit design portrays this aspect through a folded structure that creates the volume and defines the boundary of the unit. To rejuvenate the city, an intergeneration program is implemented where elderly and youth come together. The organizational system brings a sense of social interaction, through the duality in the circulation and corridors leading to the heart of the system and then splitting into the units.
