Tamayouz award entry; Baghdad Design Centre Thumbnail


J R Bassindale


The design of the centre is intended to heighten atmosphere and appeal to the senses by creating spectacular internal spaces, and a new external image. The concept is based on an idea of ‘Islamic Eclecticism’; developed from the desire to create a single piece of architecture which incorporates a mixture of elements from local and regional styles to create something that is new and original. By bringing the elements together, to create something modern, but not alien to the intended users and visitors, the proposal acts as an antidote to the hysteria of ‘look-at-me’ buildings and shape-making.
