Cleopatra Mall project will become a new Egyptian landmark in Cairo which has a concept presents a unique fusion of architecture and interior that are all linked through the iconic canopy running across the building.
From the architects: The concept takes ancient Egyptian laws of geometry, proportion and symmetry into the 21st century and the resulting architecture is contemporary and organic in design, reflecting on the past and looking into the future at the same time.
The iconic design is characterised by a gigantic canopy that covers the central area of the scheme with a span of over 200 metres. This grand gesture, defined by Padoa as ‘a wave in the desert’, is an architectural statement that covers both internal and external activities. The wave canopy marks the project’s symmetry, which is further enhanced by the design of two towers at the corners of the site, a luxury hotel located on the left, and on the right, an office building suited as a global headquarters.
Outside, the most distinctive feature is a 20,000 sqm artificial lake with waterfalls and a cybernetic fountain feature. The lake will also incorporate an evening laser beam display with musical accompaniment, creating an exciting and refreshing oasis of tranquillity in the new heart of 6th of October City.
