City of the Dead: a district of Cairo. Five interventions to enhance it - The City of the Dead is to all intents and purposes a district of Cairo! Free from all the laws which seem to regulate other areas, it represents a possible exception and above all a great potential pool of resources for the sustainable development of all the city. Five specific and independent interventions, that form part of a single strategy, regulate the flows of people which connect the cemetery to what lies around it, locally enhancing resources that had never been considered: the urban districts (catalysers of activities, people and events) and the empty areas within them come into symbiosis with five autonomous systems (large on a metropolitan scale) which surround it, drawing advantages from processes already in progress.
