title Algorithmic investigation of the actual and virtual design space of historic hexagonal-based Islamic patterns
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 16 - no. 1, 34-57
summary This research challenges the long-standing paradigm that considers compositional analysis to be the key to researching historical Islamic geometric patterns. Adopting a mathematical description shows that the historical focus on existing forms has left the relevant structural similarities between historical Islamic geometric patterns understudied. The research focused on the hexagonal-based Islamic geometric patterns and found that historical designs correlate to each other beyond just the formal dimension and that deep, morphological connections exist in the structures of historical singularities. Using historical evidence, this article identifies these connections and presents a categorization system that groups designs together based on their “morphogenetic” characteristics.

title A Parametric Description for Metamorphosis of Islamic Geometric Patterns
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 593-602
summary This paper presents a parametric approach toward studying the characteristics of the Islamic geometric patterns (IGP). The presented computational system utilizes a parametric description of the geometry to initiate the process of metamorphosis exploration and to document the generated variations. The study found that changing the parameters in the description produces new variations that have a wide range of qualitative and quantitative properties; some match exactly the properties of traditionally existed geometries.

title Morphological Code of Historical Geometric Patterns - The Digital Age of Islamic Architecture
source Parametricism Vs. Materialism: Evolution of Digital Technologies for Development [8th ASCAAD Conference Proceedings ISBN 978-0-9955691-0-2] London (United Kingdom) 7-8 November 2016, pp. 85-94
summary This study intervenes in the long-standing paradigm that considers compositional analysis as the key to researching the Islamic Geometric Patterns (IGP). The research argues that the compositional analysis of the geometry is not solely sufficient to investigate the design characteristics of the IGP, and the better way of achieving this emerges through a consideration of the design formalism.

title Heritage at Stake: Computational Design Processes for Rescuing Mosul’s Architectural Identity
source SIGraDi 2018 [Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISSN: 2318-6968] Brazil, São Carlos 7 - 9 November 2018, pp. 165-169
summary A generative algorithm for exploring the virtual design space of historic houses in the city of Mosul is presented. The method aims to progressively engage the spatial organization of traditional houses through investigating existing examples.

title Parametric Analysis in Islamic Geometric Designs
source The next city - New technologies and the future of the built environment [16th International Conference CAAD Futures 2015. Sao Paulo, July 8-10, 2015. Electronic Proceedings/ ISBN 978-85-85783-53-2] Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 8-10, 2015, pp. 304-322.
summary A method for the analysis of metamorphosis in traditional Islamic geometrical patterns using a parametric model is presented. The method uses traditional Islamic geometry as a starting point and performs an analysis of pattern’s fundamental units and cells and presents metamorphosis operation based on parametric variations of geometry and color.
