Alhosn University & Italy’S University Of Florence Holds Joint Architectural Exhibition & Seminar In Abu Dhabi
March 15, 2014
ALHOSN University has announced it’s collaboration with Italy-based University of Florence for the hosting of an architectural exhibition titled ‘Projects for Sustainable Cities of Tomorrow,’ which will open today (March 15, 2014) and will run until March 16, 2014 at the ALHOSN University Campus in Abu Dhabi. The event, which was opened by His E. Giorgio Starace - Ambassador of Italy to the UAE - accompanied by his wife, will feature the works of the universities’ students along with key lectures from Prof. Marko Sala, the Director of Interdisciplinary Research Center at the University of Florence and Dr. Mohamad Kashef, Dean of Research and Graduate Studies, ALHOSN University.
The exhibition will showcase ultra-modern student design ideas integrating sustainable building technologies and urban development practices. It will also broaden the collaboration between the two universities via a comprehensive academic agreement covering student exchange programs, faculty interaction, and joint research. Moreover, the event will serve as an ideal platform for ALHOSN University’s Architectural Engineering students to showcase their skills and exchange design ideas with fellow students from the University of Florence.
Prof. Sala will discuss innovative design and energy controls for sustainable environments, while Dr. Kashef will address the applications of nanotechnology in building and sustainable design.
“Today’s exhibition is expected to provide an excellent opportunity for our students and faculty to exchange ideas with one of Italy’s leading architectural institutions. It will also strengthen our mutual desire to actively participate within a global network of universities that embed sustainable design principles in their curricula and practices. These kinds of events emphasize the present and future potentials of our students and are essential to keeping strong ties with our international educational partners,” said Prof. Munther Momany, Vice Chancellor and CEO, ALHOSN University.
