Sarra Elomrani is a Libyan architect based in Dubai. Through Elomrani’s work, she examines the communicative methods people have utilized to articulate their surroundings – be it physical, visual, or verbal methods. Her work engages with the various nuances of these methods and the manner in which these articulations narrate the story of the built form.
In a landscape marked by the absence of life that comes in the color green, the appearances of greenery create implications of what can only be considered an anomaly. Along the peripheries of green, one can trace a phantasmagorical presence that lets itself be known in momentary instances. Transparent and reflective in its nature, it materializes an ephemeral image of the city. Becomes a marker of place and an indication of entropy. Water in its nature orchestrates a presence.
The work taxonomizes water into a script illustrating the way it exists in our spaces. Each stream has its initiation, ceremony, procession, and conclusion. It unfolds the varying layers that compose water as the tissue that sustains our landscapes in the way it currently appears.
