Create The Keys of projects

I am quite interested in the material behavior rule in architecture function and geometry and how we can use the new technologies on design scale or fabrication scale. So I would like to provide your company of using computational tools to develop the design process based on scripts that give the clients the ability to see different ulternatives and he can change in some parameters to feel that he create his own design based on our rules. I am working on using code languages like python and Grasshopper on Rhino 3D to explore more geometries and speed up the fabrication process by the output data from python.I am working on software like Rhino 3D, Grasshopper, Processing, Arduino and Python also drawings tools 3Ds MAX, AutoCad, Photoshop and I have skills in using different 3D Printers with different printing materials Universal Robotics Arm UR5, ABB Robotics Arms, CNC Machine and Laser Cutter.

Parametric Design

Using Computational methods to develop the design process that based on different parameters thet help to generate new kind of geometrical families

Digital Fabrication

Solve complex geometries and convert the design to digital fabrication data that can send to the machines to produce plus 3D Printing

Kinetic Elements

Working on kinetic architecture using arduino and convert the spaces from fixed to movable spaces on the scale of facade or different elements

Online GH Classes

Online Classes for Rhino 3D and Grasshopper. manage the data flow in grasshopper and control the process between design and fabrication

Some Interisting Facts
About Me

Machine Can Act

In the age where everyone was exploring Mars, I a young man from Mansoura, a developing city in Cairo, could not stop looking up to the stars. My whole life I have been fascinated and passionate about mathematics and architecture. I understood that architecture depended on art, but in the depths of my imagination I could not stop asking – what if a design language was based in mathematics? I grew up in an area filled with disparity and was constantly surrounded by the poor, and I could not stop but think how their stagnant slums are not enough for their complex, adaptable, and constantly changing lifestyles.

Master of Advanced Studies in Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland. The Master of Advanced Studies ETH in Architecture and Digital Fabrication (MAS ETH DFAB) is an interdisciplinary education programme initiated by the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication and the ETH Zurich. The programme is jointly organised by Gramazio Kohler Research and the Chair of Digital Building Technologies at ETH Zurich, and it enjoys strong links with the Institute of Technology in Architecture (ITA) and the Department of Architecture (D-ARCH) of ETH Zurich.
  • Teach advanced methods and technologies at the forefront of digital design and fabrication and their implementation in architecture and construction
  • focus on computational design, robotic fabrication and 3D printing
  • develop strong design concepts and realize large-scale prototypes using the unique robotic construction facilities and 3 D printing laboratories at ETH Zurich

Teaching and Research Assistant at AUC

Cairo, Egypt. I’ve also been working at the American University in Cairo as a teaching assistant in the computational design studio, and a research assistant in digital fabrication and robotics lab. My strength in my research backgrounds comes from my applications of both my passions of mathematics and art. My first field of research background was in responsive architecture. I developed an electronic chip called “Archuino” which helps people to design responsive architectural elements. This “Archunio” is used by students in both the American University in Cairo and Mansoura University.
