Living Tower: A Vertical Horse Stable for Luxor

As a means of alleviating Luxor from its fast growing problems of congestion and pollution, a public econ-transport system using horses and carriages is proposed for the city central. A transport union is proposed to accommodate the horses, drivers, carriages, food and waste needed for the operation, as well as taking on the form of a modern public park. As a means of addressing Luxor’s problem of available cultivatable land, a network of living towers is proposed, connected via undulating landscapes and elevated circulation rings. As a beacon of sustainability, the towers are constructed via a sustainable hybridisation of imported new technologies and re-invented vernacular cladding materials, built over time by the locals.
