PARASITIC WORKSHOPS

pascale maatouk

Based on the studies done on our chosen area, which is located in Burj Hamoud, we realized that this area is full of workshops that are mainly connected to the living spaces of the people there. Unfortunately, most of those workshops are gone unnoticed or are even closing down due to their lack of exposure.
This building doesn’t sit into an empty plot but rather attaches itself onto an existing building that has two blind walls which would be the basis of these extensions.
“Parasitic Workshops” is a collective vertical workshop connected to a social housing which will not only help regenerate the workshops but also affect the whole area itself by reviving this interrelationship between the living spaces and the workshops that is already existing in the area and also introduce a new typology into the city.
