The site of the project is in on the northern edge of one of the most prominent suburbs of Cairo and at the same time sits at one of several entrances of the less luxurious and neglected neighborhood known at New Norha (2). A location wedged between contrasting social, CULTURAL architectural, arc urban situations
Accordingly -The Nozha Gate” project has been chosen for the plot as to address its unique situation and deal with the past, current and anticipated circumstances and dynamic physical realities of the area “The Nozha Gate” project is to provide Recreational and Cultural facilities to the residents of the vicinity and Us visitors while acting as its main gate.
The different edges of the site pose many diverse challenges and complex problems that need to be analyzed as to allow for a sustainable architectural solution that addresses the existing built environment, and allow for a better way of living for the whole neighborhood. While bridging it’s different sides.
The building hence allows for specific sets of functions through highly adaptable and efficiently interconnected spaces that cater for all the different needs of the residents, craftsmen. & visitors of the neighborhood that seek a unique venue for recreation and cultural interaction.
first I use AutoCAD software to start drawing the site and its boundaries, then acontextual model physical and digital on SketchUp software was made (in group work) to help understanding the context better, then I begin to draw my plans on AutoCAD and presented by photoshop software, then begin modeling my project on SketchUp and Rhino then visualization by photoshop for the whole panels and shots
I have learned a lot about contextual design, talking to people, knowing their needs, and purpose solutions that match their lifestyle, architectural and environmental solutions, also to put objectives for the project and execute it in the different aspects or fields of the project.
