Joy Alexandre Harb

Joy Alexandre is a co-founder of JYH International Architects. JYH was founded by Architects Joy Alexandre Harb & Yanna Haddad, both having initiated their studies at the Lebanese American University in Lebanon. After graduating with Honors, their quest to get more involved with advanced architecture led them to Barcelona, the capital of Architecture & Design. It is at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) that they received their Master’s degree alongside all the passion for innovation-oriented architecture, and enough imagination to shape the future of cities. Our vision evolves around advanced technologies with the idea of space adapting to the need. We focus on exploring the effect of this technology in our daily life and how it helps shape the architecture we live in. By doing so, we can simulate the feelings intended in the space, and create comfort or any other desired emotion. Hence the choice of the architecture reflects directly on one’s lifestyle.

Ar. Junaid Ahmed Khan - LEED AP ID+C - Int'l. Assoc. AIA

My Architectural Design focus mainly tends towards two major areas;

1. Research and practice in computational and parametric design. I'm currently experimenting and research in the most advanced parametric design tools while aiming to integrate these tools with important architectural design aspects such as shape and topology optimization, environmental and structural analysis. 

2. Advanced Sustainable Design, for this reason I've been accredited as Pakistan's first LEED AP in Interior Design + Construction. My focus in this area is majorly on the latest construction technology and source material reduction in buildings.

« En tant qu’Architecte, poursuivant la formation HMONP a L’ENSA Versailles | Ile de France et Membre à l’ordre des ingénieurs et des architectes au Liban #58417.

Mes études mon permis de comprendre à quel point le monde nécessite d’être métamorphosé pour survivre à l’image de la biologie et du corps humains et de s’adapter à tout changement (ex le covid-19).

L’Architecture jouera le principal élément de changement - de spatialité, de cadre affectant, les modes de vie en changement permanent vu les différents événements actuels. L’Architecture, à travers ces lignes qui s’ouvre vers le monde, le public d’une part et ferme d’autre part vers le privé. De ce fait, le pouvoir d’Architecture, entre une convergence et une divergence, entre le tout et le rien, le plein et le vide, la transparence et l’opacité, entre une construction et une reconstruction. Ainsi l’Architecture procure un changement à travers des solutions créatives, et je vise faire partie de ce changement.

D’ailleurs, nous ne pourrons pas changer le monde entier à travers l’Architecture mais impérativement le monde ne peut pas être changer sans l’Architecture. »
