Crystal City
RESIDENTIAL COMPOUND BY  NR ELHADEDY

The crystal city is the a conceptual idea for a residential compound in new capital in Cairo , The project is located on an area of 138,096 sqm, The project comprises of residential buildings, a strip mall, and a recreational central area .

 "a human interaction could not be forced it could only be welcomed and influenced by the built environment "  .
We saw this project as chance to make living more fun , interesting , and peaceful. ,A concept that introduce beauty not just in it's visible aspects  but the beauty of living a healthy natural social life that uplifts the spiritual aspect .
we built  this conceptual idea based on the human need of natural social interaction  , the question was how to achieve a connection in a level that would be appealing and acceptable in our every day life ? before answering this we came up with some consideration to focus on, the hierarchy of  spaces from public to private , the natural atmosphere that make such interaction more welcomed , and the most important one to make such interaction come very natural and indirect , 
so by connecting people  with nature will eventually connect them with each other in a natural spontaneous way., 

as human beings we thrive in a coherent social environment , and this is exactly what our project is aiming for  ,, by enhanced interaction , welcoming social activity , integrating with nature

So the steps was as follows : 

in urban planning : we created five main zones that intersect with each other  creating a public activities that separate it from the semi public zones , 
in buildings : we tried to manipulate orientation and block composition to provide an open sky view   ,
in units : we tried to make sure  that the resident will be comfortable living in one building by creating large welcoming  entrances  , and provide privacy for each unit , we also made sure natural lighting and greens are integrated whiten the building floors
