The Departments of Interior Design and Architecture in the College of Engineering at Ajman University of Science & Technology organized a unique workshop. This one-off workshop entailed the visit of a German delegation of Students and Faculty from Damstard University of Applied Sciences who jointly worked on a project along with students and faculty from Ajman University.
Aptly titled, Hybrid- Design and Culture the primary aim of the workshop was to design Kiosk units which are dual in purpose that is for viewing pleasure and as a business unit. The place chosen for this purpose was the beautiful coastline of Ajman Corniche. The students both from German University and Ajman together worked on marrying both the German and Emirati Culture with design.
