ARCH 793B: Architecture Directed Design Research Gallery: Graphic Intervention


This project aims to investigate the precedents’ performance in terms of their functionality, lighting, air quality, and permanency. Moreover, using precedents from Islamic Architecture to reconnect with this heritage of innovation by using the vast repertoire of patterns and applying them to the design using rules that have been developed and refined over centuries. With these ideas in mind, I have designed a community center located in Pittsburgh, PA that is meant to revive and support the neighborhood of the Strip District.
