The building is a skyscraper of culture, a CULTURESCRAPER that efficiently services its varied programs with a unifying core. It is an entity composed of 6 major public programs stacked on top of each other. Stacking creates a sequence of individual experiences which coalesce to form a unified whole.The main cultural programs reside in the sky to liberate the ground. By lifting the large programs into the sky, the building creates a generous and accessible public space. The plaza becomes a public gathering space for formal and informal artistic events. People stream in from the Ghalghoul or through the new pedestrian tunnel that connects the districts north of the Ring Road to see plays and exhibitions.
