Al’Aqaylah, NEW URBAN DEVELOPMENT PROJECT, 2010

Al'Aqaylah, Libya

The design is based upon available construction material and technology in the region, in order to be of an efficient and modern construction already employed in the region. Within the development there is to be a variety of public usages for immediate support of its inhabitants. Every plot starts with a one floor construction, but has an option of adding a fist floor. This is to guarantee a development of the settlement over years. The semi dry climate of the location in a distance of about 500 meters from the shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the topography of a gentle slope toward the Sean gives the opportunity, with an appropriated urban design, to generate a pleasant climate via natural air cooling systems of the whole Al'Aqaylah settlement.
