Siwa, the land of resources that people passed by used to fed on its resources,
previously Siwa was a completely empty town that was used by people heading to
Egypt from many countries in the east & west. It was actually a huge comfortable
place for people to rest in, with resources such as, water, shelter and food the 3
main needs of any human being on the earth. People that passed by Siwa added
many things such as agriculture lands, homes and shops, and also took many of its
resources and lands for their own needs. The unstable social state of Siwa, form of
the rocks and mountain, and the steep slopes of the site Gafaar Hill, inspired me to
create zones carrying a rocky forms linked by ramps for vertical circulation, so
users can feel the experience of getting on the top of the mountain as a great facial
experience. Moreover, to increase vision axis for the user, I stretched the vertices
of the masses to create a shape in rhythm with the hill.
