My architecture focuses on the adaptation of each project in its own context with its own particular story. Also, my projects focus on humanity and climate change since architecture is for everyone, not just for privilege people. Therefore, the role of an architect is not only to build for rich and capable people, yet to everyone using specific architectural systems that will adapt to a specific situation. 

Elegance in design is crucial. However, there are many different ingredients assembeled all together in order to result with a good architectural project, and the social aspect is a major part of any project as well as sustainiblity and most importantly, the respect of nature and history. 

In our firm Zein Engineering we focus on several issues in the world such as scarcity of ressources, refugee crisis, displacement, immigration, poverty...etc.Well, Architecture could be the driving force to solve numerous problems in the world.  Also, Zein Eng. is recently commissioning several mega projects in Lebanon and the Gulf countries working with high-end projects and providing the best architecture possible for the client, for the context, and for society.
