Performing Arts Center

Project Location: Abdoun | Amman | Jordan
Area: 13,600.80 sqm
Building Type: Performing arts.
Materials: Concrete, glass.
Design Type: Hypothetical Project| Proposal

•Performance art is a performance presented to an audience, traditionally interdisciplinary.
Performance may be either scripted or unscripted, random or carefully orchestrated; spontaneous or otherwise carefully planned with or without audience participation.
The performance can be live or via media; the performer can be present or absent. It can be any situation that involves four basic elements: time, space, the performer’s body, or presence in a medium, and a relationship between performer and audience. Performance art can happen anywhere, in any venue or setting and for any length of time. The actions of an individual or a group at a particular place and in a particular time constitute the work.
The Jordanian population is characterized by its relatively high youth population. In 2008, an estimated 37% of the population was under the age of 15 and 58% under the age of 25. The total number of young people ages 15-24 has grown more than 10-fold since 1950 and is projected to reach 1.4 million in 2020, the equivalent of 18.2 percent of Jordan’s total population.

Social objectives
-Make performing arts Open to all sections of the public, with or without
targeting of non-traditional audiences, or restricted
to members of a parent organization (e.g. University)
or social group (e.g. children).
– To provide an attraction for the tourist, conference
and other visitors.

For community use:
– to encourage participation in creative leisure activities and appreciation of the performing arts
– to provide a social focus and meeting place
– to act as an information point and resource center for a particular performing art or art in general
– to provide a base and/or performance space for clubs in the community.

For educational use:
– to teach the art and craft of performance
– to act as a base for Theatre-in-Education
– to provide performances and workshops for children, young persons and students within an educational program.

Water Oasis Concept

About Inflatable structures:

An inflatable building only requires pressurized air within the cavities of the walls and so does not require airlocks since the occupied interior of the building is at normal atmospheric pressure. Since a much lower volume of air is pressurized, inflatable buildings require less power for continuous operation.
The air contained within the walls of an inflatable building becomes a true structural part of the building. The membranes used in the construction of such buildings are typically less than 1mm thick, so the amount of membrane used compared to the volume of air contained within the walls is incredibly low (typically less than 0.5%). This makes inflatable buildings efficient in terms of the amount of raw materials required to construct them.
The small amount of material used in the construction of inflatable buildings makes them highly portable. When a building needs to be moved, the air can simply be allowed to escape enabling an entire building to be packed into a small volume compared to its inflated size. The building can then be transported easily to its new location and re-inflated.

Community center # 2

Project Location: Wadi Al Hajar | Zarqa’a River| AL Balqa’a | Jordan
Area: 900.00 sqm
Building Type: Civic | Community Center
Materials: Concrete, glass.
Design Type: Hypothetical Project | University 2010 | Proposal

Located in one of the remote areas of Balqa’a, Jordan, the Zarqa’a river was once one of the main water resources for crops and the daily needs for the residents and Jordan at times, nowadays, after years of neglect and abuse, the river has turned into a small stream of water which was causing an environmental issue to some of the local inhabitants living around it.

A visitor center was considered to be a solution for overcoming the issues caused, and as a way to regenerate the water back to the stream, and create a space for the locals and visitors to help maintain the river’s new revivability project which was due to be established in the future.

The project was limited to a 1000m2 program, and the basic concept was to create as much open space as possible as to maintain the ingenuity of the site, and make it as transparent as possible for both the locals and visitors to enjoy, and find leisure in .
