Tahrir Square Urban Renewal

Dalia Sadany

Urban Planning and Urban Design Tahrir Square Urban Renewal by Dalia Sadany Tahrir Square is the backbone of Egyptian political history and therefore reviving its urban design is a political, environmental and social desideratum. The master plan involves closing off some of streets and merging them into the existing square without upsetting traffic flow. Three projects were then created to accommodate a recreational and commercial functions as well as a memorial to mark Egypt’s modern political history. The plan took into account sufficient space for strolling and seating areas and a high green area ratio to introduce color to the city.
