MINISTRY OF DEFENSE

In the Ministry of Defense, the challenge was to find the right expression that differentiates between the notion of defense and hospitality. We represent each soldier with the solid basic geometry of a triangle. The architectural composition is based on the repetition of the triangle as a basic module whether in plan or in elevation in simple order that fosters the delegation ceremonial reception as well as the strong expression of the Ministry of Defense in one of it's prime facilities. The well known Arab welcoming and hospitality for their guests is shown through the simple movement of the facade units in harmony. İt is also manifested in the welcoming shape of the building canopy that expresses the building function, reception and hospitality under one shield.
