The most important feature of the project is that the cooling the hot air which is the typical for Arabian peninsula and taking it into the structure. For this they aim to cover the structure and its court with a huge eaves for protection from the sun. Square cavities which in the eaves are designed with rhythm of fractal number. This rhythm which support of palm trees, is creating a structure which is combined with the green. This work is a brand new perspective to the trending green building concept.

CONCEPT
Human being always prefer the exciting life to boring and monotonous life. Development in our intellectual system take place by this way. In this project, at the beginning, design has to make a choice. First option is to diffuse the program through the area which emerges disconnecting outdoor from indoor and breaks off continuity. It results as decrease in enthusiasms in area. Second option is to agglomerate the program in area which means connecting indoor with outdoor and to promote enthusiastic areas. In this project we chose second one.
