    philosophy of the term al Nakba which translates into catastrophy and refers to the loss of Palestine as an Arab land and the expulsion of 700 000 Palestinians from their homeland This project brings an architectural interpretation to this event through its choice of architectural forms and their integration into the landscape Architecture is here used as an unconventional but brilliant tool to emphasize the experience of al Nakba The building from the outside melts into the landscape and the experience from the inside is primarily defined by transitional spaces The contrasts in the composition of shapes and in the manipulation of light which is also used as a way finding tool throughout the paths of the project simulate feelings of tension connected to a traumatic event such as that of al Nakba We feel that a weakness of the project is that a number of its spaces are rectangular masses that stray from the project s overall concept and the approach Anchoring the City Back to the Sea We can describe this project as a protective social humanitarian and cultural project The project dealt with the problematic situation of the Aqaba seashore being blocked by the port through opening the area to the public through establishing connections within the landscape and creating continuous spaces and through promoting local agricultural practices The planning elements of the project such as its walkways act as extensions to the existing site and the circulation networks that take people from one level to another are carried out in an effective manner that allows users to experience the shore in new ways There is also an emphasis on the horizontal forms of the project s architecture which opens it to the sea and uses local materials in a transparent manner All this gives the complex a sense of lightness and helps integrate it within the surrounding landscape Although the scale of the project is large its architecture remains humble and is integrated within the landscape Circassian Interpretation Center The project addresses a subject matter of authenticity brings an identity to the proposed program and sensitively situates the project on its site Moreover the project s different units create a unified and coherent composition that expresses a close relationship between its different parts The final architectural product emerged from several analysis phases that are clearly reflected in the presentation massing study model layering study model morphological diagrams etc The complex also is sensitively connected to the surrounding topography and effectively incorporates the local construction material of stone The interior of the project however is not continuous with the project s pattern and resembles a ready made product Streets of Shatila An Artifact of Exile This project is very sensitive in that it effectively connects to the urban context and deals with a diverse urban community which is usually a challenge in architecture This is especially the case for a project such as this one since it deals with the radical urban complexities of refugee camps which

    market forces but that also result from the proliferating images coming out of the trend setters of our profession From amongst the 145 entries that were submitted for this year s Award cycle a significant number of participants showed considerable capabilities relative to what our profession expects from graduates entering the field We selected five winning projects from these entries for their courageous attempts at producing meaning through the act of architecture The variety of the questions resulting from these explorations shows that students from the Arab world are very capable of making worthwhile contributions to the ongoing architectural debates currently taking place beyond its regional frontiers We feel that the five winning entries may be divided into two groups The first group contains three projects that are an outcome of an engagement with the very specific social economic and political forces if not upheavals currently affecting societies in the Arab world All Senses Pavilion is a marvelous project that presents a poetic narrative and that gives hope and transcends the conventional limits of architecture by proposing an experiential project rather than a contemplative one Home for Bedouins is the only built project submitted for the Award and the only candidate that shows great resistance to the prevalent ways of construction Treading the Line demonstrates the importance of reinventing and constructing a relevant program as a central part in the architectural act The proposed project shows great levels of poetics by drawing interesting parallels between destruction and production and by creating life in abandoned cemeteries In contrast to the first three nominees the two entries of the second group show a concentration of effort on producing form as a main driving force in the act of architecture As a result we feel that these two projects could have been produced
