In the framework of the studio III Architecture curriculum, Architect Hatam Fariborz, (Director in Aedas limited) has been invited to introduce the project Mosque for the New Era in UAE. The lecture was presented in the American corner in front of an audience of students in Architecture and Interior Design.
The guest speaker was introduced to the audience by Prof. Raymond Tennant, Provost of Alhosn University. Arch Hatam spoke about the circumstances that initiated his idea of a new type of mosque for UAE and Dubai specifically. His development of the concept behind this unique form of mosque generated numerous questions and comments. “The successful presentation of Arch. Hatam was a step further in the development of studio III content for this fall. The aspects that Hatam illustrated in his talk enlightened the students and helped them discover more possible options for their project of mosque. I am awaiting their designs to see how much they learnt from these several interventions,” said Dr. Naima Benkari, Assistant Professor, and organizer of the event.
