The building is located in Alexandria, Egypt, and consists of spaces devoted to a data center, a museum dedicated to international cultures and a research center. The architectural element has the purpose of creating a monument that represents the territory of the city of Alexandria, welcoming its current and future needs and requirements.
This purpose is intended to be carried out by searching for those characters with which it intends to identify the building. Furthermore, the design involved the interaction of different fields of an architectural project.
And so, the project involved the interaction between the architectural composition, the choice and application of materials, the study of the integrated structure. All this through the support of BIM design and a study of the systems. The key word that guided the building is sustainability from an architectural and constructional point of view compatible with the needs of Alexandria.
