Architecture: A Specialized Study of the Mechanisms of Technological Coexistence in Existing Hospitals,” was

applied in architecture at the design level and its impact on the different levels in terms of blocks and facades and
the connection between the old and the new when added through the principle of symbiotic coexistence and its
applications in contemporary architecture. The thesis concluded that coexistence is a strategy for preserving
existing buildings, especially buildings of moral and economic value, in a way that serves the needs of human life,
the development of the technological aspect, and the relationship of structural formations over time, and that the
product formed from coexistence has distinctive and new features through the relative variation in the elements
of the facades or Materials used to create a distinction between old and new.

The Department of Architecture qualified in the international architectural competition “Designing a Monument to the Events of Nuclear Tests”

Written by
The two students, Ali Ziyad and Aisha Shabib, qualified in the fourth stage among the list of 50
nominated designs to win the international architectural competition, “Designing a Monument to the
Events of Nuclear Testing.”
It is noteworthy that the competition aims to embody the nuclear testing disaster in the Nevada desert
that shook the world.
The two students’ design focused on evoking the idea of light emerging from the center of the
monument as a symbol of hope and development towards a rapid, open era. The appearance of the
monument came to express respect for the privacy of the land and the traces left in it, as it was treated
as a trace of the experiences that had occurred and not covered up and considered as a witness to our
current era. The corridor connected to the road represented an embodiment of the difficulties and
crises that occurred as a result of these experiences and the lives that were lost as a result of reaching
scientific facts that help us continue in life and reach experiences of value to humanity.
The Department of Architecture (chairmanship and staff) congratulates the two student architects on
their qualification to win and wishes them an architectural future full of creative achievements.

Written by
 Under the patronage of the Honorable Head of the Department of Architecture, Prof. Dr. Ibrahim Jawad
Kazem, and in compliance with the directives of the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Higher Education
and Scientific Research, and coinciding with National Planting Day, the Voluntary Works Committee in
the Department of Architectural Engineering organized a planting campaign for gardens near the
department building and an activity (manufacture and dissemination of seed incubators) as part of the
University of Technology’s activities on the occasion of National Planting Day.
The campaign was completed with the participation of the department’s professors and students and
under the supervision of the Assistant Head of the Department for Administrative Affairs, Lecturer Dr.
Yahya Adel Ibrahim, the Head of the Architectural Design Branch, Lecturer Dr. Ahmed Louay Ahmed, and
the Voluntary Works Committee headed by Assistant Prof. Dr. Rawaa Fawzi Naoum and with the
assistance of the Agriculture Unit in Department of Diwan Affairs at the university.
Types of trees, shrubs and flowers suitable for the local environment were selected and planted. As for
seed incubators, it is an idea that involves preparing a mixture of clay soil, natural fertilizers and a
mixture of plant seeds and forming them into balls that are dried in the sun so that they are ready to be
spread and thrown in any arable area.
After the completion of 200 seed incubators, they were distributed to the department’s professors,
employees, and students, and we hope to continue to spread the plants and increase green spaces in
the buildings and squares of the city of Baghdad.
