One of my projects (final assignment) in my first year of Interior Design/ Interior Architecture at VCUQ.
This last assignment/ project within the course was to design a pavilion/ folly for Oxygen Park in Education City at Qatar.
My concept was influenced by Middle East Region’s architectural design concept- Mashrabiya and air circulation. Origami also influenced my design concept.

A material that is half wood half textile, between hard and soft, challenging what can be expected from a material or category. It looks and smells familiar but feels strange, as it is able to move and form in unexpected ways.

“My Burning Back, the story of an infamous photograph of a boy lying on his stomach with his back burned red, the result of being exposed to the radiation of the A-bomb, and what happened to that boy 6o years later.”
The boy was a mail boy during that time, the nuclear radiation exposed on to his back while he was riding on his bike. Doctors peeled his back’s skin slowly and the young boy screamed “Kill me now!” several times. Even after several years of the event he could sometimes ‘smell his burning flesh’.
