Young Egyptian Architects Competition 2021Frist prize Soaffld Educational Hub Center

Location : Ezbiet Al safieh, Cairo Code : e 1320 Team: Al Hussien Bin Ali Fawzy – Alaa Hamed Mohmmed Fawaz – Alaa Hassan Mohmmed – Hagar Gamal Introduction As the world is slowly reopening post Covid 19, easing lockdown measures, everyone is adapting to new realities. Imposing drastic adjustments to our lives, the coronavirus has introduced a new “normal”, changing our perceptions and altering our priorities. Driven towards questioning and evaluating our environment, we are constantly reacting and anticipating a relatively unknown future. The new restrictions placed on society have been a catalyst to rethink much of what we take for granted in the built environment. The way the world has adapted to this new lifestyle may forecast new normals following the COVID-19 outbreak. It is evident that we cannot return to the world as it was before. One of the strongest messages in the attached report is that our common humanity necessitates global solidarity. We cannot accept the levels of inequality that have been permitted to emerge on our shared countery. It is particularly important that the world supports developing countries with investment in 21st century education infrastructures; this will require the mobilization of resources and support from developed countries, in particular with debt cancellation, restructuring, and new financing. The magnitude of this challenge is clearly evident with regard to the digital divide in Africa. F...

Location : Shoubra Qalyobia Team: Mahmoud fayz - Eman Adel - Amira Khaled - Ali Mahmoud Code: E1298       Why? Why Education: Since the start of the pandemic, Educational Facilities were the most ones facing difficulties and challenges Why Cairo: Cairo governorate was chosen because it has the most census of the population, so we find that it is one of the most governorates in need of radical solutions regarding social distancing and the control of diseases and epidemics. Why Primary and Preparatory stages of education: We choose primary and preparatory educational stages Because the local culture of the people gives the most importance to these two stages, so we find that they are the two most crowded stages of students. Why Elmarg district: Because it is the highest district in Cairo with students in the primary and middle school stages. Design process: After Applying the 2-meter distance between desks on the 90m2 area available (the recommended space from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention l) the number of desks was significantly low (7 desks) compared to a minimum of 21 desks before the start of the pandemic, which doesn't fit to the high numbers of students that already go to the crowded classrooms of schools in Cairo. After Applying the 2-meter distance between desks on the 90m2 area available (the recommended space from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention l) the number of desks was signific...
