The relationship between sailing and farming is the source for this project development. The fields themselves are physical semi-permanent spaces that fill the river margins but the boats are ever-changing and flow with the river. The main objective was to establish that long-lasting relationship through a stationary representation of ancient boats and sailing methods and construction into the building itself, capturing the dichotomy of those different ways egyptians used and still use the river. A sailing building that respects the fields around it, embracing the river as part of its form, so it feels like a boat and a building at the same time, sailing through the fields of grass and water.
