Mohamed Fekry Mohamed
Dr. Mohamed Fekry is a professor of architecture and design. He received his Masters and Ph.D. in Architecture from Cairo University, Egypt in 1999,2004 respectively. Dr. Fekry's Ph.D. thesis entitled “THE ROLE OF CRITICISM IN ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION: An Experimental Model for Enhancing the Architectural Students' Critical Skills in Design Studio”. It focuses on developing one of the higher mental skills of the students of Architecture; where an experimental model was applied. The model increased the students’ participation in the design studio, encouraged the students’ skills in presentation of ideas and design projects, improved the students’ ability to connect between the design concept and appropriate design solutions, and improved their ability of analysing and introducing constructive criticism of the design projects. Dr Fekry has taught Architecture and Design in Egypt at Cairo University between 1995 and 2009. In addition, he has taught Architecture and Design in KSA at Umm Al-Qura University between 2009 and 2013. He is currently teaching courses in capstone project and Design Studios at Effat University, Saudi Arabia. Dr. Mohamed's main concern now is to pass on his practical experience of design to younger architects as well as to develop educational courses that reflect these concepts to the architectural students. His research interests include Design Process, Architecture Theories, Environmental Design and Urban Conservation.
