Dear Mr Mohamed
Thank you for your work regarding the project titled "National research for the development and preservation of Tunisia agricultural heritage in Siliana".
First of all i want to congratulate you about your work on analysis, problematic and description of your project. It is really very good. The problematic is not only related to Tunisia itself but also to all our Arab Mediterranean countries.
Regarding the form of your project, i noticed some weak points. You choose the leaf as main form to be applied in your design. You apply it without any scientific transformation. I advice you to read books related to the transformation from forms to architecture and mainly you should read MATILA GHYKA (The golden number; The geometry of art and life; Geometric composition and design) or other books related to your concept to learn the knowledge of transformation of a form to an architectural project.
in brief, first of all you chosen the form, you should have to analyze this form, its main lines and all the logic of the composition (direction of the main lines, structure, proportions etc.). After that, you apply the logic and not the form in 2D and 3D which is not the case in your project to avoid formalism.
