  • Ergonomics of Baby Carrier

    Khalifa, Sajid; Alshareif, Ghaidaa; Design
    The study concerns the Baby Carrier's Ergonomics on the current baby carriers in the market, scopes, and issue statements are defined with an overall design Model review. There are many baby carriers on the market these days including; baby slings, baby wrap, and baby carrier backpack. Most parents tend to put the baby in the wrong position. The ergonomic carrier allows parents to carry the baby on the front, back, and hip to ensure that the baby is placed in the anatomically correct position for proper spine and hip growth. Many carriers have openings that hang nearly straight down the thighs of the child. It is also important to note that the material selection is vital in order to give the baby and parents comfort. Many carriers have openings nearly straight down where the baby's thighs hang. The material choice will also allow both the baby and their parents feel relaxed. This project aims to examine the dimension of ergonomics in the current baby carriers’ model and review the norm and legal issues related to the layout of babies. Therefore, this need will improve the baby carrier's safety and ergonomics. Benchmarking and anthropometric analysis were often performed to differentiate between three types of baby carrier that are baby sling, baby wrap and backpack carrier in terms of size and ergonomic characteristics.

    Ibrahim, Asmaa; Alouthah, Deema; Master of Science in Urban Design
    Saudi Arabia has hundreds of heritage places all around its cities. Old Jeddah is one of the most significant places among them. It is known as Albalad, which is rich in heritage and cultural values. In 2014, Albalad was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Since then, the government has begun to promote and regenerate the area to attract visitors and tourists worldwide. In 2022, Prince Mohammed Bin Salman launched a project about revitalizing Historical Jeddah. This project aims to develop the whole historical context, including the old Suqs, to be more socially and economically livable as part of the main objectives of Saudi Vision 2030. These historical Suqs are full of crafts and traditional products surrounding historical buildings. Historical Jeddah suqs include four main ones: The Al-Alawi, Bedouin, Al-khaskiyah, and Nada markets. However, the rapid growth and the emergence of the oil era led to the historic Jeddah deterioration. This deterioration has affected the economic and social aspects of old Suqs. Accordingly, this paper addresses the socio-spatial challenges facing the regeneration of the historic Souq in an attempt to increase the livability of these Suqs to be more attractive not only for tourists but also for residents and typical users. The research will identify different challenges users face inside the Al-Balad region on weekends and weekdays to deduce the best regeneration scenarios. This will ensure the conservation of the historical identity while corresponding to all current needs of all users and tourists and make use of all abandoned spaces and historical buildings included within the historical Suqs. This research methodology conducts a triangulated method using qualitative and quantitative data collection tools. This includes questionnaires in addition to semi-structured interviews that will be managed with traders of Albalad Market and decision-makers. Furthermore, the in-depth on-site observation method shall cover a specific market zone which is Al-Alawi Suq. Finally, the expected result of this research is the deduction of a framework for regenerating the historical Suqs of Albalad to revitalize them socially and economically.

    Refaat, Ahmed Mohamed; Ghazoliy, Shahd; Master of Science in Urban Design
    The impact of fast transformations and globalization on urban development endangers the quality of urban life. As a result, cities have lost their primary role, which is that cities must serve their residents. Also, the towns became dependent on cars, leading to the loss of the human dimension and negatively affecting the quality of life. Thus, there is a need to restore the human dimension of urban open spaces through a balanced and healthful relationship between human being and their cities. From this position, this research aims to identify an appropriate framework contributing to restoring the human dimension in residential open spaces and promoting a better quality of life for the residents. The research addresses two main approaches: the quality of life and the humanizing city, to investigate the relationship between the approaches. The relationship between the quality of life and the humanizing city approach helps to deduce a theoretical framework from the common principles. In addition, the research uses a quantitative method which is a questionnaire, to explore the stakeholders' opinions about the importance of these principles. Then the collected data was analyzed through a computer program to determine their relative weight. The research ended with an appropriate framework to restore the human dimension and enhance the quality of life in the open public spaces within Jeddah city neighborhoods. In addition, set a group of recommendations for the stakeholders to promote the human dimension and increase the rate of quality of life.

    Every human life requires sport in some way. Every stage of life benefits greatly from it as well. Mainly because frequent participation in several activities keeps our bodies in good shape and fortifies our hearts. Sport practicing has many benefits, whether it is a passion or a profession. It has a significant impact on the economic, political, and cultural aspects of our society. Through sport practicing humans can get rid of everyday stress and make connections with each other. Tourism and its profitability can easily increase by holding sporting events. For all Saudis to routinely exercise or take part in sports, hundreds of facilities have been built around the Kingdom. Thus, the availability of sports camps is crucial, particularly for those who are young and want to preserve their physical fitness and health. Additionally, it might aid in their athletic skill development. Sports camps organize a variety of healthy and recreational activities and give kids and teenagers sports instruction. Sports are valued at all educational levels in Saudi Arabia, from kindergarten to university. For athletes just starting out, they also provide advanced instruction to help them improve their abilities and get ready to compete against professionals. The main objective of sports camps is to improve skills, but it goes deeper than that. For instance, developing relationships with various people, picking up new skills, and maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle are extra benefits a person can obtain. Although these efforts, some athletes struggle to find someone who can guide them effectively because there are not enough proper gym facilities. For example, due to lack of training, some athletes have poor motor skills, insufficient conditioning, undeveloped and unrefined talents. There are some clubs that train them, but they are not known or approved. Although there is King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah and the General Presidency for Youth Welfare (GPYW) stadium in Riyadh, they are primarily used for sporting events. Athletes are not trained there. There are many football centers that help athletes become professional as it is the most popular sport in Saudi Arabia. So, finding a facility that supports professionalism in other sports is rather. Through many existed cases (places), this paper is mainly to highlight the importance of sports in society and how interior design can meet the needs of athletes and solve most of their problems. The main goal is therefore to design sports facilities that serve athletes where some athletes have difficulty finding effective support due to the lack of adequate exercise facilities and suitable designed spaces or services.

    Abdelrazik, Ahmed; No Collaboration; NA; 0; 0; Design; 0; Abdelrazik, Ahmed (Journal of Architecture, Arts and Humanistic Sciences, 2021-04)
    Museums are the memory of societies, the veritable images and the mirrors which reflect the heritage values on everyday life. Museums always inspire visitors and send their souls and minds to times and ages that are full of values and authenticity. Visiting museums is always one of the most attractive planned activities of any touristic program especially in a country like Egypt. Indeed, there are many unique great museums in Egypt where the government is working to apply many plans and strategies to improve these museums and upgrade their displays and facilities which attract visitors, support tourism and by extension increase the national income. The Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) in Cairo is one of the greatest Islamic museums in the world (The museum includes various and unique collections of artifacts, which number up to 100,000 pieces). This amazing museum reopened in 2017 after a car bomb attack targeting the Cairo Police Headquarters on the other side of the street which caused considerable damage to the museum and destroyed many artifacts. This paper is presenting an applicable approach (a current project) to enhance the visit to MIA for visually impaired and blind people by manufacturing copies of many collectibles masterpieces. In fact, there are many technological applications which help visual impaired and blind people when visiting museums, but the majority of these applications are expensive and require many arrangements. The objective of this paper is to describe and discuss the production process of selective masterpieces' copies which are produced to be ready for presenting side by side with the original pieces.

    Abdelrazik, Ahmed; No Collaboration; NA; 0; 0; Design; 0; Abdelrazik, Ahmed (Journal of Architecture, Arts and Humanistic Sciences, 2019-02)
    The Egyptian traditional handicrafts are the result of the cumulative experiences of the community which reflects the cultural heritage of the individuals and their relationships with one another, with the available resources and also with the surrounded environment. These traditional handicrafts are varied according to many issues, but in general the result is always artistic and fascinating. In fact, there are many studies about the types of the Egyptian traditional handicrafts. In one hand, there are many studies about the classification and analysis of these handicrafts. In the other hand, there are less studies about how to develop and improve these handicrafts, but the majority of these studies are considering these handicrafts as (art works) …Yes, It is acceptable to consider these traditional handicrafts as art works or artistic artifacts, but this way of thinking is limited and would not be able to promote these handicrafts which wrestle so as not to disappear. This point is the main core of this paper which is presenting and discussing a strategy to preserve and promote the Egyptian traditional handicrafts. The idea here is to think about these handicrafts – not only as art works/artistic artifacts – but also as industrial products. This overarching consideration leads to build specific actions (methods and plans) to achieve goals. The suggested strategy will not be a theoretical proposal, but it depends on realistic discussions, examples, interviews and an actual experience of challenges and alternatives.

    Abdelrazik, Ahmed; No Collaboration; NA; 0; 0; Design; 0; Abdelrazik, Ahmed (INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF DESIGN AND FASHION STUDIES, 2021)
    There are many aspects and different variables shaping and affecting on any approach of design education. These differences depending on many related crossed issues such as; the cultural atmosphere (historical background, language, religion …), economy (wealth, poverty…), the political situation (Power, stability, alliances) and mainly the understanding of the concept of design in itself which varies as well, according to the perspective of the users, designers, design researchers and design academics. According to the researcher’s experience which is more than fifteen years studying, teaching and practicing design in Egypt (Faculty of Applied Arts, Helwan University) and around six years as a PhD candidate in Germany (School of Art and Design, Kassel University Then Braunschweig University of Arts). There are huge differences between the opinions/visions of professors and design teachers in each country. These differences- and other things- lead to many major variables in framing and constructing the curriculums and design subjects which consider as a real challenge to think or to speak about one common language of design education. The idea of this paper based on a qualitative approach, which focuses on framework of the design education systems in Egypt and in Germany. The paper importance came through diagnosis the varied features and the different aspects of the problem, then discussing how to fill the gap between the variables and presenting a viable strategy to reduce these differences and thus tend towards a common design education discipline.

    Abdelrazik, Ahmed; No Collaboration; NA; 0; 0; Design; 1; Bataineh, Anas (Journal of Architecture, Arts and Humanistic Sciences, 2022-01)
    Recently, concerns about the effect of air pollution on school kids have increased. There is a growing body of evidence about asthma's development, as well as the worsening of symptoms of people with asthma, and exposure to air pollutants associated with traffic. For this reason, air quality control in the internal environment is considered one of the important things to monitor pollution levels, assess the appropriateness of the child's environment in the classroom, ensure a safe environment, activate the activities of air filtration, stimulate environmental awareness among the decision makers, and develop technologies according to data. Due to the absence of a standard tool for the data of indoor air quality of classrooms in The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan schools, this research provides: a proposed system to measure air quality. It consists of: distributed sensors connected to a developed system and constitutes a wireless sensor network (WSN). Sensor nods are based on low energy ZigBee movements, and transmit field measurement data to the cloud through a portal. An improved cloud computing system has been applied, monitored, processed and visualized to store the data received from the sensor network.Data-processing shall be implemented and analyzed in the cloud through the application of artificial intelligence techniques, to improve pollutants and compounds technology. The proposed system is: low cost, small-scale, and low energy consumption which can enhance the effectiveness of air quality measurements, therefore a large number of nodes can be published, as well as the provision of the relevant information in order to distribute the air quality in different areas. Carbon dioxide is often considered as reference laboratories for measuring indoor air quality, because its high concentrations indicate that: Conditions of poor ventilation, probable accumulation of pollutants in indoor air. This is mainly related to technical difficulties in monitoring the quality of indoor air in classrooms, in contrast staff members and students inside the classroom relate ventilation to thermal comfort instead of the quality of indoor air (2: page 556), through the control of the mechanisms of direct exchange with the external air, regardless of the conditions of external air quality, and the exposure to pollutants, which arising from the surrounding environment in general, especially schools neighboring public roads.

    Abdelrazik, Ahmed; No Collaboration; NA; 0; 0; Design; 0; Abdelrazik, Ahmed (Journal of Architecture, Arts and Humanistic Sciences, 2023-07)
    Abstract: A Mosque is the heart of the Islamic architecture. Since the dawn of Islam until now, mosques are still considered one of the most important places and facilities for Muslims. Muslims gather for prayer inside the mosque five times a day, where a mosque purpose is not only for worshiping, but also as a meeting point for Islamic social and intellectual activities that usually reflect religious identity. Indeed, Muslims are doing all their best to preserve and maintain their mosques as an overarching privilege that enhances their religious, social and cultural interactions. Despite the unlimited number of mosques all over the world and the noticeable increasing interest in developing their architectural, structural, fundamental elements, there is a less interest in developing, modernizing and updating the mosque furniture and its accessories. Accordingly, this research paper mainly focuses on clarifying the importance of developing these furniture and accessories that meet the physical and psychological requirements of the mosque visitors (worshipers) as these items and accessories enhance and improve worshipers’ experience inside mosques. In a sequential manner, the paper is a brief for the evolving role of the mosque (from ancient times until today), and then explains its value as an Islamic architectural beacon. The paper goes into depth in diagnosing and discussing significant needs for updating mosque furniture and accessories, by highlighting weakness or shedding light on what is not available. In this context, the researcher presents and discusses many contemporary design paths for mosque furniture, in addition to clarifying many different ideas for accessories by presenting drawings and details of many design ideas for contemporary mosque furniture (Footwear shelving system, locker system, chairs …). Moreover, it is highlighting some contemporary ideas for various accessories, such as: The Holy Quran reading holder and the central chandeliers in the mosque.
