The Anubis Towers, Cairo | Conceptual Design
With a population of ten million people, over half under the age of 30, the city of Cairo is paradoxically dominated by a drab concrete urban sprawl lacking the ambition, scope and majesty of Egypt as a modern nation, or its pivotal role in the history of mankind. As one of the world's most important cities, Cairo deserves an architecture that reflects its people's aspirations for the 21st century, as well as its rich past.
This project proposes what's currently non-existent on the Cairo skyline: ambition, modernity and references to the Egypt's role in the development of design in human history. The Anubis Towers reference ancient Egyptian from everything from textile design, architecture and painting.
