Tatweer Misr’s constant efforts are directed into creating a community that shapes the urban space identity and sense of place. To accomplish such goals, ‘various tangible and intangible attributes related to various interactions’ should be implemented within the urban spaces of Tatweer Misr’s projects in order to ‘affect the person’s experience’.

The ‘structural relationship between a sensory environment and activity within that environment can aid in experiencing the place/community/city in a more sensory experience, that in turn creates a more “happy community/city”. This “happy community/city” will not only ease the community’s life but will also allow Tatweer Misr to exceed their community’s expectations towards their urban spaces.
Several other studies conducted on millennials have shown that a percentage of these millennials would rather lose one of their five senses than give up their phones/laptops. This strong connection between people and their gadgets portrays the huge impact of technology on humanity. Given, if people compare their phones/laptops to their five senses, technology could then be treated as one of the human being’s new additional senses; and if this is the case, another layer of means of interactions between the community and their surroundings is created using technology.

Please provide us with various design attributes that uses the senses of the human being (seeing, touching, smelling, hearing, tasting and technology) to shape more identifiable urban spaces within Tatweer Misr’s projects; that will subsequently be implemented into the developments and create a “happy community/city”.

Please make sure your design characteristics show:

  • How will this affect the user’s experience within their urban space using one or more of the five senses?
  • How feasible it is to implement within Tatweer Misr’s developments?
  • How can some, if not all, of these attributes use technology to enhance the interactions of the community with their surroundings?
  • How can it be customized to the Egyptian society?
