Building-City
In designing the Kia Lab Project, it has been tried to create an interaction between the building and the city by adding a new application to the building, which has the role of an urban hangout and to make the border between city and building invisible. In this way, the user is faced with a structure that is both a building and a city, and the border between the two is not easily recognizable. In the Kia Lab, people can get to the first floor of the building through the stairs placed in the passage. Residents can enter the building through the stairs and reach the first floor, without the need to enter the building and be on the ground floor. The first floor is empty space with a view of the street.

Stork’s Nest
Qarah Ziya od Din is the city of storks. Storks are so respected throughout the city that the inhabitants have made different folklores and stories for them. The storks build their nest on the infrastructure that the city has prepared for them. The physical structure of Kia Laboratory is created based on the geometry and structure of the area and is level with the neighbors’ roof. From this level up, the formation of the building’s structure is different.
