Quantcast

The Space-Scraper designed by Mohamed Abdel-Aziz is a mixed-use development proposed for the Maadi neighborhood located in the southern part of Cairo, Egypt.  The project has three twisting towers interconnected by a geo-sphere on the top floors. A commercial area is located in a seven floors podium with restaurants, cinemas, and retail areas. The first tower is used for offices; the second one is a five star hotel while the third one has high-end residences. The geo-sphere is a health center with a Spa, swimming pools and other fitness areas.

One of the most interesting aspects of the proposal is its structure and form derived from wind studies and maximizing views to the adjacent Pyramids, Cairo, and the Nile. The Space-Scraper is a sustainable building equipped with water recollection systems, solar panels, and wind turbines.
