New City - Egypt's "Sisi-City"

Sisi City

"New Cities" a new Quarantine Time series of my blog where we will see new properly planned cities of the modern and new Capitals of World. In this blog, we will see the new Egyptian Capital named "Sisi City" which was put forth to reduce the overcrowded and polluted Capital City of Cairo. 
The country's new capital is widely known as the Lovechild and would be a legacy project of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Hence we can see why the city is named "Sisi City".

The new bigger, better than other and doubtless more sophisticated than any other sprawling megacity on the Planet which will be placed between the Nile River and the Suez Canal and will cost around $58 Billion. As the Capital city of Egypt, Cairo will get the most populated and hence will require this megacity and will reform the economy and reduce the congestion. This megacity is such a huge project such as mammoth with New Parliament House, more than 30+ Government Ministries, Central Bank, an Airport Larger than Heathrow, and a new financial district with many tall and super tall skyscrapers including the Tallest Tower in Africa.

The new region will house more than 1000 new schools and colleges in total and more than 500 hospitals. The list is still not over... there will be more than 700 kindergartens, more than 40000 hotel rooms 4200000 sq m of malls and yes the central park will be bigger than New York's central park.

In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure.



Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT i.e. Cross Laminate Timber which …
