Dr Hamed Hyab Samir, is the Head of Architecture at the College of Engineering, University of Basrah. Dr Hamed received a visiting scholarship at the University of Loughborough, School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering. As part of the Visiting Scholarship, Dr Hamed plans to research and explore how the legacy of Basrah's past can be transmitted to future generations to ensure cultural consistency in the development of the country. The aim of Dr Hamed's research is to digitally document the tangible and intangible heritage of Basrah and to set a plan to create a digital library in order to revive the collective memory of local residents and to raise their awareness regarding the value of the local heritage.
