Traditional barahas, open areas on the barren land are predominant public spaces in Muharraq. As unplanned
and unprogrammed transient spaces, they have potential to accommodate all kinds
of architectonic structures and activities within the city.
seeks to investigate an architecture of contemporary barahas, designing smaller
public structures according to own program, based on the individual research of
each student. The new structures could be temporary or not, engaging the structural
logic and informal life of the city, in-between the monuments of Pearling Path and
on the sea-shore.
The aim is
to create a series of punctual interventions along the Path, to express its
seasonal, transient and leisurely character and to trigger the new architectural
understanding of public spaces in the city.
