Ramses Square Competition – 2nd Prize, Cairo
Design: Quilligan Architects
Ramses Square Egypt
picture from architects
Ramses Square
The key objective is to define Ramses square physically and give a sense of place to the remodelled square by reinforcing the edges, removing the high level traffic, and reorganising the surface traffic. The design should also upgrade and provide new attractions to the square in the form of shopping, cafes, public events with music, and films. The urban design layout will also provide a variety of development opportunities in making the plan shape and this will draw in private investment into the scheme.
