The Morphology of Space

Studies and Restoration

Studio VIII / 4th year

In this project a historic site location in Ras Al Khaimah/UAE (Jazira Al Hambra) undergoes a general and comprehensive site analysis, which will provide data upon which parameters relevant to the design intend will be selected and employed as form generators. A physical model will be a diagrammatic representation of the collected data, forming the relevant parameters into shapes.

The second stage of this project is the actual design process deriving from the extensive site analysis and reading of parameters.
This part of the project will be a combination of partly a complete restoration of the existing fabric and partly an introduction of new space configurations to optimise existing or traditional design combined with broad concepts that have been already developed during the analysis phase.
