THE CONCEPT OF COURTYARD HOUSING IN DESIGNING MODERN CITIES AND SOCIAL GROUNDS Name of Student Course Instructor Date Courtyard can be described as a circumscribed area that is usually surrounded by a complex or a building that is open to the sky. Such kind of places in a public building served as primary meeting venues for some reasons. Both the words yard and court derive from the same root referring to an enclosed space. The Arab world has had some of the most outstanding courtyards that were used for various purposes. The relevance of these courtyards continues to fade as modern architecture and ways of life replace this style of housing. This research paper will look into the use of courtyards and the possibilities of making them relevant now and in the future. Investigating the reasons why they continue to diminish in value may help in understanding the reason ed. Kuwait. file: Marassi Bharain Residence Brochure. 2017. Ebook. file: McLean Fiona. 2005.

This is a research paper for my final thesis proposal. My topic is courtyard houses specifically in the Middle East/Arab countries/Islamic world. My site is In Bahrain (which is in the Middle East). So, please focus on this typology and history and not other cultures or civilizations. I want to explain courtyard houses in the Middle East, what was their function especially culturally, and why they are not used as much anymore. Use at least 6 case studies and explain IN DEPTH. Also, come to the conclusion of contemporary courtyard houses. I will be attaching articles and guidelines. I have written an abstract to let you know in summary what my thesis is about. Also, I will be attaching a bibliography of the articles and books that I want you to use. If you want to use other sources, make sure they are SCHOLARLY, although I don't think you would need anything more than what I am providing. But some files are not attaching since they're too large, so I attached images of them but they are in order so you can easily read them.
