MEAN (Middle East Architecture Network) is a design research collaborative. It is an interdisciplinary community of Architects, Designers, Programmers, and Artists. As an Innovative Architecture Practice, MEAN's mission statement is to amalgamate computation, material research, and design, providing Innovative solutions in response to current technological and economic trends, factors integral to the planning process. MEAN will aspire to derive beauty from performance, efficiency from scarcity, and the elevation of the human condition from political friction.


مين (شبكة الشّرق الأوسط للهندسة المعماريّة) : شبكة بحوث تعاونيّة. وهو مجتمع متعدّد التّخصّصات عبر الإنترنت من المهندسين المعماريين والمصمّمين والمبرمجين والفنّانين 
وبإعتباره مكتب معماري مبتكر، فإن مهمّة مين هي دمج الحسابات والبحوث الماديّة والتّصميم، وتوفير حلول مبتكرة إستجابة للإتّجاهات التّكنولوجيّة والإقتصاديّة الحاليّة، كجزء لا يتجزأ من عمليّة التّخطيط. تطمح مين إلى إستخلاص الجمال من الأداء، والكفاءة من النّدرة، ورفع حالة الإنسان من الإحتكاك السّياسي

Social Design


As the ‘Middle East Architecture Network’, MEAN uses design as a tool to raise awareness on issues surrounding environmental, political and economic conditions in the context in which we are working in. MEAN believes that design can cause change and we are working actively to spread awareness through our work.  As part of our workflow, we collaborate with humanitarian and social networks, and help them spread their message through design installations and other pro-bono projects.

MEAN is committed to architectural design that is contextual to the location of the project. We work with cutting-edge technology to envision innovative solutions to contemporary spatial design.

At the forefront of the architectural design process, MEAN utilizes generative design methods, computational simulation and digital fabrication using local materials and expertise. We work in feedback loops between digital simulations and analogue tangible materials.

Experimental Structures


At MEAN, we are committed to design research. We believe in the myriad of possibilities made possible by the fourth industrial revolution.

We are constantly experimenting with methods to design and build exciting, spatial and structural pavilions, paving the way to a seamless design to production construction process.

We believe that the seamless integration of computational design, digital structural analysis and CNC manufacturing will become the future of construction.
