3-Style that i use

There is a Mixture between the modern and Islamic   architecture
The Islamic architect is reflects the identity of the place
And the modern architect reflects to the time we are living in
I didn’t apply the Islamic architect as it is . but I followed another
way to simulate it

Father and Son Skyscraper

The Green roofs and the green areas:

* Planting green areas to increase the refreshment of air and the humidity of the dry places.

*The green area is healthy for oxygen. And it gives a good view for the eye.


Why a Skyscraper in this place ??

  • The main reason is to decrease the crowding in The capital Cairo.
  • Its place is close to the airport from the north.
  • The view of the skyscraper is Digla Valley. And that valley is a tourism valley . and it can attract tourists and spend some time in the skyscraper’s hotel .

Its Obvious from the Mixture of the two architect methods that:

  • The Islamic architect is rotating counter the clockwise direction.
  • The modern architect rotating in the clockwise direction.  And that doesn’t reflects the modern or the classic look .



  • The more we go up of the ground, the more of the negative Energy we got. And the more we go close to the earth, the more positive energy we got .
  • The negative energy comes from the ultra violet radiation of the sun  . and to transform it to a positive energy , we use it to lighting any space with indirect light .
  • And the same in the Ventilation .
  • Using all the Surfaces with the solar cells to give a clean energy .
