A Lecture from Mohamad Hamouie
Mohamad Hamouie’s private research and practice have made him one of the leaders of New Traditional Architecture in the Middle East. He is a member of the INTBAU College of Traditional Practitioners, a Professor of Practice and the Director of the Institute of Islamic Art & Architecture at the Lebanese American University in Beirut, School of Architecture & Design. In 1993, Hamouie established his private practice. His first project as an independent Architect, the Central Mosque in Shkodër, Albania was nominated for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 2001. Through his comprehensive knowledge of history and awareness of local context, Hamouie has created original award winning designs that are site specific and culturally-attuned. Over the course of his career so far, Hamouie has designed and built more than 300 projects ranging from private palaces to large urban developments. In collaboration with master craftsmen worldwide, he has designed spaces and structures that are as much guided by contemporary theories as by traditional values.
