    The work introduces an architectural proposition to tempelize a movable pigeon-house in which the droppings could be used as a natural fertiliser for community shared gardens. Deconstruction and elemental reconstruction of an archaic temple explores stories that surrounds field of Tempelhof. The beloved Berlin airlift terrain in-dipole to the Volkshalle, also the state forces’ parade field that its suspended condition now, drains investors around and the skate kite surfers inside. The void produces a lot of wind.

    Khurvin situates at the rural near Karaj and Qazvin highway in Alborz province. Located at the south skirt of Alborz, it is a village with land with elevation around ~2000 meters. The regional traditional architecture is under the influence of constructions in the northern region of Iran. Massive Masonry (stone, wood), peripheral corridors and inclined roofs because of the rain and snowfalls during the winter. Region’s vernacular constructions shows rich open spaces with publicly visible circulation connected to the main spaces. Secondary and recreation spaces are places in the second floor with an external access to them. An unbuilt ,20 year old, structure  was already existing in the site of the project at the time of the commission. The client wanted to propose the design over this previous construction because of the municipal procedure and premissions, so the design started to occur over this context. Spatial Conception 1. Spaces are organized on the basis of the existing structure: a grid of 4.5 m X4.5 m 2. A mezzanine (middle floor) as a surface, transforms the actual grid plan, connects two floors to provide access and a gallery which yields into an opportunity for the second floor to have a liberal plan. 3. Second floor  acts as a service space used for bedrooms, a private corner but which can also be re-planed by any program released from the actual construction grid.

    • Client: Noor-e-Mobin Foundation
    • Design Period: May 2014
    • Architect: mbnqstudio
    The educational building was asked to house the students in the primary school.* design was proposed as an alternative in a group of propositions. 6 elaborated and multi purpose classrooms were needed that each three hosted students from 1st to 3rd and 4th to 6th grade. The building stretched in the site enclosing two half surrounded courtyards in two opposite sides of the site, each acting as a semi independent court one for primary and one for secondary school. The classes consisting of a roofed area and an open space are located at the top floor using the opportunities offered under the unitary roof: the sun light and the fresh air from mountains in the region. The service spaces, buffet, eating place and common amphitheater were arranged around the courtyards. The roof is slightly inclined following the ground's topography and shedding all the spaces together, while the network of circulation and corridors connect spaces in the lowest and the middle floor level.
    ایده استفاده از نهایت امکانِ ساخت در زمین مد نظر بوده است. در طرح با کل زمین و حجم قابل تصور در آن به صورت توده ای برخورد شده که در اثر تخلخل و خالی کردن حیاط هایی از آن امکان استقرار فضاهای پروژه به وجود می آید. دو حیاط در سطح دو طبقه در دو ناحیه معکوس و به صورت قطری در زمین در نظر گرفته شده است که کیفیت های متفاوتی را برای استفاده مستقل دو فضای آموزشی ایجاد می کند. این دو فضا و سایر فضاهای پروژه از طریق شبکه ای از راههای پوشیده و نیم باز در زیری ترین سطح پروژه به هم متصل می شوند. فضا های سرویس و مکمل آموزشی حول حیاط ها در طبقه اول سازماندهی شده اند. کلاس ها بالاترین سطح پروژه از امکانات سقف برای گرفتن نور و فضای نیم باز استفاده می کنند. کلاس ها حاوی تراس ها یی در نیم طبقات از دو فضای سربسته آموزشی و تراس سبز استفاده می کنند . در این طرح شیب سقف عاوه بر امکان ایجاد اختاف تراز در سطح آخر یکپارچگی حیاط ها و حجم کلی ساختمان را تاکید می کند و با به وجود آوردن حجمی یکپارچه محیط آموزشی یکپارچه ای نیز به وجود می آورد
