REINVENTING OUR CITIES, KAZARDA’S VISIONARY CONCEPT REPRESENT A GROWTH OPPORTUNITY FOR EMERGING COUNTRIES.
Ancient city “Heliopolis”, one of the oldest cities of Ancient Egypt was founded to be the center of the cult of the sun god Atum which was an important deity at the time, every pursuit to shape cities in harmony with our culture, beliefs and economy was a profound step to develop a better environment.
Tales of great cities nourish our imagination, people are fascinated by sumptuous places where culture, literature and art are masterpieces to sustain growth or lure skilled individuals. Naturally, we are inclined to build a new city in order to combat climate change which remains a critical issue for our political leaders at this moment.
Posing risk to our natural environment in the long term, the main question is: Aerotropolis as a city centred on the airport, is it realistic for a major part of our population and political leaders?
Are we valuing more our economy and wealth than our natural beauty and environmental preservation?
