BAGHDAD DESIGN CENTRE
Client : The Rifat Chadirji Prize
Status : Completed
Service : Design Competition
Participants are asked to transform the current unused site of the Old Governorate Building into the Baghdad Design Centre.
The design is a subtle and deeply informed response to the complex parameters of site, including climate, setting, conservation zone, technology, technique, aesthetics and local building typology.
The vision is to create a small oasis of contemporary architecture within the skin of a colonial governate building that is deeply inspired from the traditional and looks towards a new language for the future.
