Studying the multilayered urban ecology of three neighborhoods in old Cairo one begins to understand the complex social perceptions of its inhabitants. The perspectives of Karim who’s 13 years old, Ahmed 34 and Aam Diab who’s 72 created a continuous narrative of a Cairene’s journey through time in their city. This tower/ bridge project narrates this journey as one passes from the old city up and over the Ayyubid city wall, through an observation tower, arriving at Al Azhar Park.
