Malaab el Kobri - Cairo

"Malaab el Kobri" is a student project at the GUC Architecture and Urban Design Department in cooperation with AYB - Alashanek ya Balady in the winter term 2014-15. It involves the design and implementation of a new football field typology that includes additional community services, i.e. as a gathering space for community meetings and festivities, an open class room, a playground, etc. It further serves as a showcase for decentralized, green infrastructure. As part of a longer-term strategy these programs may also be anticipated in the design, for example as add-ons. The project will be realized by the students in close collaboration with the inhabitants. 

Technical Description

To avoid the use of concrete and to ensure the temporal quality of the project, it is built as a light-weight timber construction. The building material itself is scaffolding wood.The platform is set back from the Nile by 35 m to adhere to the flood management line.
