Social Life in Vertical Spaces


Reforming urban architecture for a more inclusive, communal well being

The project addresses a broad social and health issue prevalent in Sharjah influenced by the urban design and policies. A residential tower that addresses these issues is not the ultimate solution to the problem, but rather a response to the site conditions in Sharjah. Exploiting the advantages of the vertical nature of housing in the city to bring these essential recreational spaces closer and more accessible to the residents.
