Joaquin Perez-Goicoechea and Nasser Abulhasan, Principals & Founders of AGi architects, took part as speakers at an event organized by Oman Center of Architects in Muscat.
Under the title “ArchiSystems”, AGi architects advocated a need for a change in the urban planning and architecture of the Gulf. Based on the knowledge and experience the design firm has in the region, both Nasser and Joaquin made a journey from the foundation of Kuwait to the present day, analyzing both housing and urban evolution during this period.
Various projects of the firm -of different typology and scale– served to highlight the approach and values of the architecture by AGi architects. High-rise buildings such as Wind Tower, which transforms single family dwelling typologies into vertical typologies, where tenants should be able to enjoy privacy as well as benefit from vertical solution amenities and prime location; healthcare centers such as the Hisham A. Alsager Cardiac Center, a positive space, one that is able to act as a hub for social activity, rather than just a medical center; single-family homes such as Three Gardens House, which is committed to sustainability through the design and application of passive strategies and a contemporary language; office buildings like Prointel, that now has versatile spaces, open to an outside patio, thus optimizing natural light. And many other projects by the firm that allow to offer solutions to current challenges: Mashhad City Complex, Ali Mohamed T. Al-Ghanim Clinic, Wafra Living, Credit One, Wall House, etc.
