CAIRO – 17 August 2017: Alexandria by night has a very different feel. With the arrival of the deep blue velvet sky the Mediterranean city appears covered with a sparkling blanket of millions of lights. Driving alongside the sea on the Corniche you will see lights mingling on the horizon. When entering Alexandria by car, you will be astounded by the contour of interblending traffic and building lights stretching widely.

Every city has a personality and changing seasons through the day. Starting from the dawn with the pre- dawn, the city starts to awaken. With the Sun rising on the horizon, the day begins. However, Alexandria never really stops.
The traffic will rise as people join together in traffic. They will cross pathways and criss cross in all directions. The residents and the visitors will commute, gather and socialize.
Alexandria is a place where you can feel this rhythm differently. The city seems to have a pulse almost like the sea waves. The road traffic, the tram line, the black and yellow taxis running like busy bees are all elements molding into the city’s movement.
The city has its own rhythm and each person is a part of this rhythm within their own rhythm.

The residents and the visitors will experience this rhythm differently, yet their paths will intersect on the screen of everyday life in the background of streets and at the sea in Alexandria.
Life around the sea harbor in the Alexandria forms a natural flow of built in activities.
