An Architect, graduated in 2006, from the Arab Academy for Science and Technology, Cairo, Egypt - (Accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects - part I).

I am interested in contextual architecture that is not based on style, but rather the urban nodes/elements that can be analysed as creating physical forces that shape up the architecture. I believe that every architectural building has a contextual impact, thus the more thorough and extensive the context is analysed, the more suitable the architectural outcome will be. Contextual architecture is also an important factor, of many, that lead to sustainable buildings. I am against the rising trend of fragmented architecture, and against iconic/literal architecture. I am an anti-globalist, and believe that every civilization, nation or race has its own way of life, beliefs and therefore architecture. Thus I do not believe in a unified architectural style.
