RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
in the first we made a : ( collective research ) about the transportation systems in egypt and the transportation networks . research objectives : to find the best and suitable place to make the project on it which has overlaps in more that one transportation system. we found that Monib district and Monib square is the best location in the capital to make the project on it because it has the most overlaps in all types of transportation networks . after that we made another research on the selected place . research objective : to collect data on the traffic ,transportation lines in-sight , the main problems in that zone to trying to solve them with the project . the research analysed: - the existing case circulation and flow analysis . -land use timeline growth in the place -statistical data : density , building conditions and construction type of building there . after all of that : we made our decisions on how we will face these problems and how to change these constraints to be a good development by using international standards in redesign the square and in design the stations and the connections between them .

CHALLENGE:
the main challenge was how to convert the existing place that crowded with slums into a new catalyst that encourage the people to upgrade the place . and how can we deal with the road network to maintain it and convert the monib square from its initial form to an organized and standard form . Also we faced some challenges while trying to connect the different way of transportations with each other smoothly with minimum distances for the passengers to move from a transportation system to another without facing troubles .
