Patterns formed for this project is derived from; The River Nile, Benu Birds, Egyptian Palm Trees and the White Egyptian Lotus Flower.The patterns evolved through a series of design exercises that derived from the ‘Egyptian Nature’ concept. The design is made up of three key components. The first, is the weave that interconnects between floors; The sofit is sculpted into a diamond shape to give the second layer of the skin. Finally, the balconies are a continuation of the first component and accentuate the dynamic form of the weave
