A House in Bahrain

Maitham Al Aali


The architecture in Bahrain is now lost between tradition and modernity. The drastic economical changes that occurred there had a large influence on the architecture of the Island. My thesis is a study of the changes that occurred to the architecture of Bahrain over the past thirty five years. It is also a design of a modern house in Bahrain that does not neglect the traditional architectural values of the country. In my work I focused on using geometry and geometrical proportions which in turn unifies the different parts of the house in harmony.
