Department of Architecture and Building Sciences - Welcome to Dr. Hatem Galal A Ibrahim Home Page

أحبكم في الله
أغسطس 2008
الحمد لله نحمده ونستعينه ونستغفره ونتوب إليه ونعوذ بالله من شرور أنفسنا وسيئات أعمالنا من يهده الله فلا مضل له ومن يضلل فلا هادي له وصلى الله وسلم على نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين، أما بعد أقرأ المزيد
    Statement & Teaching Philosophy
A right environment accommodates and encourages students to present their opinions while respecting the opinions of others. By giving students a voice in class, not only do the students benefit from peer-peer learning by enriching the course material with personal experiences and knowledge, but they also take responsibility for their own learning and, therefore, enhance the integration of their new knowledge into practice.

         Dr. Hatem Research Interest

Dr. Hatem got his PhD in year 2001 from School of Architecture and Building Engineering, University of Liverpool, United Kingdom. The research is focused on building an Environmental Noise Advisor (ENA), which is knowledge and reasoning system for employing human-like intelligence in offering advices concerning noise in buildings. ENA can be re-implemented to measure the performance of many variables that effect building, such as lighting, indoor air quality…etc.

It is necessary to acquire a new bridge to organize the co-operation between the architect and the behavioral scientist to construct the necessary techniques for suitable occupants environment performance. This is by implementing a procedure, which starts with determining what exists and what is desired until the post occupancy evaluation. Accordingly, one of Dr. Hatem  papers is constructed under title of: “Design Process Co Ordination for Relevant Building Environment – Program to Fulfill User Need.” 

Another paper comes in the major of Architecture Education. It is a complex process that encourages students to develop new ways of seeing, thinking and doing in order to become capable and quality-assured designers of the built environment.  Most of the architecture students graduate with little experience of architecture as a discipline, and therefore a large part of architectural education is concerned with the development of new cognitive abilities, a paper titled by: A Knowledge-Based System Assisted Teaching Course for the Undergraduate Level “Landscape Course As An Application” has described a knowledge-based expert system approach to a teaching and learning system, which can be used to promote experiential learning by providing facilities for student-interaction with the system in order to gain fundamental knowledge in the field of Architecture Education.

One of his researches is: Simulation-Based Design for Development and Implementation of Based On Economy Issue”. It constructs the criteria based on simulation of design process as a guide to the designers to be followed to achieve the sustainability performance in buildings based on economy issue as a part of the Economy of Resources. 

A piece of paper of Human Factors Affecting Tenants of Intelligent Buildings was published to predict weather living and working in intelligent buildings accomplishes the psychological and social requirements of its occupants or not. Since, architects must take into accounts that conversion to intelligent buildings is a lifestyle transformation.

 Measuring community success is one of the most important things to ensure that the development process is managed in a successful manner. It is likely to stimulate responsive action of population. Dr. Hatem research “Urban Development Associated With Sustainable Community-Case Study of Siwa Oasisintroduces a presentation of the sustainability that imposes a strong commitment to action directed towards reshaping the relations between communities and their environment, thus defining a strategically context, which re-collaborate the goals of future community development. A case study of Siwa oasis sustainable development project, which has chosen by the United Nations (UN) as one of the best development projects, is selected as a case study to be analyzed.

 Another interesting subject of measuring the performance of building by using Eco-Building criteria. Establishing true eco-building tools as targets for measuring and evaluating our environmental impact is not fantasy. It has been done and used in Europe, and many other countries long time ago. Increasing the awareness about community, and economic benefits of buildings leads to promoting the design, construction and operation of buildings and landscapes. Dr. Hatem piece of work “Integrating the Value of Eco-Building within the Design Process: An Introduction to Assessing Criteria in Egypt  introduces the idea of implementing eco-building tools to be used in  in form of categories. Each category is reflected the performance and how much the building is qualifying the eco-scheme.

 Another research  is: Opportunities for a new approach towards Intelligence in buildings”. Intelligence can be used to improve the performance of the building fabric by making it more capable, so as to reduce the need for imported energy for heating, cooling, lighting and ventilation. Thus, the goal is to reduce the operating cost of the building while maintaining the desired environment for the building occupants. This paper is intended to help architects make more informed decisions that will be important to ’s Future Comfort and Finances. It also outlines a new methodology which takes account of the Intelligent Architecture (IA) and illustrates the application of this methodology to the analysis of a particular project, showing how this might be achieved.

 Designing and planning of urban societies in desert areas should take into consideration not only the climate and topography of the desert but also has to involve a clear idea about the impacts of the activities in the area. It is requiring special considerations during the designing and planning of the urban zones. Accordingly, another piece of work “Environment Polices for Urban Regions at Desert Societies: Baseline Indicators for Future Ventures”  is concentrated on the activation of Environment Impact Assessment is necessary for evaluating the urban region. This issue is evaluating the effects on the environment of impact factors arising from a proposed change in environmental quality. In other words, we can say that the purpose of an EIA is to determine the potential environmental, social and health effects of a proposed development. It is a systematic examination of the environmental consequences of projects, policies, plans and programs. Its main aim is to provide decision-makers with an account of the implications of alternative courses of action before a decision is made.

Book Review

Overall this is a fairly good detail book and well presented with nice modern houses. The level of details is more on the level of DD and SD and varies from project to project. The best CD details are only found in real construction drawings. The German's "Detail" magazine and books also shows comprehensive details. Another good detail book is "The architectural Detail, Dutch architects visualize their concepts" by Ed Melet.
this book has less texts then the Dutch architects detail book. Also, the drawing details are on average larger. The details are also drawing in an American's standard presentation. The Dutch book is presented with European hatches and drawing standards, which are not as easy to understand. The range of details type methogolies are very good, from some what of a roof garden to cylinder metal house.
At time there are too many SD overall sections and plans that take too many pages. The CD (disc) is nice and includes a lot of drawings in CAD .dwg and .eps format with no texts.
This book is a giant leap forward compared to most architecture books. It is outstanding because it presents each project completely; with photos, plans, sections, and numerous quality details. The information is much more complete than I am accustomed to seeing from these types of books, and the drawings are for the most part clear and well-noted. There's also a CD included with DWG files and EPS files of every illustration! ............................more about this book
