KA Architecture Studio designed an entrance to the Jahad Metro Plaza comprised of barrel-vaulted forms made from handmade bricks.

Commenters were in awe of the structure. One found the “absence of exposed concrete with vaulted forms” refreshing. Another praised the “modern twist” on “ancient and original forms”.
