Creating a catalyst for future development which fed by Nile to upgrade the surrounding urban context. Also creating a rapid transporting events with along-term positive impact.
The hub location represent the historical transportation connections, water and rail, refocus bus transit both local and regional, and integrate with walking activities so that people have a multi-layered choice on how they travel to carry out their day-to-day activities.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project is a Transportation HUB that links the surrounding urban settlements to the heart of the dynamic life in easy and efficient way generated by merging different transportation systems like railway, metro, bus station, and Nile deck in addition to other services to convert the place to be the catalyst for the future development.
This project will mainly be used by ordinary people so we are aiming to achieve a new experience for the users, by providing a place for people to access local amenities and work opportunities that helps to improve the community to achieve a better future.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
- The project designed to smart linking all types of transportation systems in a different levels , to enhance smoothness of transportation flow .
-Supporting and facilitating for people with special needs
-Easley connecting the capital to east part of the country throw trains.
-Decrease the loss in time effort and energy in the city transportation system
-Directly linked the airport to the main cairo metro grid
-providing commercial and managerial areas for financial sustainability in a high efficiency .
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
location : MONEB SQUARE - GIZA - EGYPT
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
3D Modeling and Visualization , BIM technology : Autodesk Revit Software
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
total area project on : 40 acres = 161874 sq.m
HUB , transportation , station , train , bus , catalyst , nile , metro , piazza , monorail
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 .
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 .
