This project is really interesting and futuristic concept of complex transport hub. Those big spheres would be very iconic landmark and also commercial centre and melting pot of next generation. My subjective opininon - the red colour is quite aggresive, this unusual shape is very rare and would be noticeable even with some colours of surrounding enviroment, to blend more with the city even though it has futuristic shape.
This station would be an strong intervention to the current structure of the traffic in the locality and would need a huge research about the future of current transport buildings, trackage for trains, roads and so on. So maybe this project would be even in bigger scale due to its impact. After incorporation of all the aspect, the final variant of this project may look and operate different.
To sum up, architecture here is surely futuristic and uniqe, in the means of architectural study it is very nice project and maybe you can finish it in the future, maybe in latter semester, to become feasible.
I wish you all the best in your architectural studies! :)
Dear Juraj Ženiš,
I appreciate your feedback and I loved how you reacted to Imagined my project, So I'm Proud that you liked the design and It has that spheric shape because It represent one of the main elements that the Egyptian layed on for decades (Fishing) and it represent the fillen ball on the fishing rod.
The Color Is solving Main problem in transportation in Egypt and many fastfood resturants and public spaces use these nervy colors to make users just use what they came for and go not to sit and stay In that resturant for hours.
the problems is that Egyptian people take a while in every public space and this makes everywhere in Egypt jammed so to look for functional aspects in the project I need people to get to the project and take the (train, metro, etc ...) and go to make the movement flow better.
In the End I graduated since 2020 but I wanted to participate with you and thank you for your precious feedback and your precious time.
The Concept is about the Nile and how much it affect us and the shape inspired by the balls that flow on the river from the fishing rod and the movement of the waves around it and waving the land from a displacement map taken from a picture of The Nile to give the land the same wave smoothness.
A Train Hub-Station That Contains ( Train station, Bus station, Taxi station, Furry station, Monorail station and 5 Double Lanes underground Metro station ), So The project is to handle more than 750 thousands per day in a transportation hub like this in the middle of Cairo and on the Vein of it (The Nile).
Based on the style of architecure used in these plans of cairo 2050, It became clear to us to see the modern style touching our city So the project site is seleceted to became part of this development and become the Iconic Building On the Nile.
