The purpose of this thread is to showcase and provide easy access to projects that are interesting or inspirational. SSC is a huge forum and it is impossible to be aware of all projects posted here.
Also I would like to make this thread as a wish list for what I like to see build in Iraq (IN THE DISTANT FUTURE) hence the "Inspire" part of the title
here we go with some of mine:
One of the best examples of post war renovation, I wish to see "Old Baghdad' between Tahrir Square and the MOD headquarters turned into something like this.
, London-Kings Cross Station
and DC- Union Station.
They all have been refurbished modified for the new century transportation's demand. we have Al-Mahata Alalamiya in Allawi and I hope in the future it gets the same treatment.
NYC-WTC transportation Hub.
Creating an efficient mass transit system is essential to big cities livelihood and I hope one day, the proposed metro/light rail lines meet at existing Garages like Nahda and so forth.
Abu Dhabi- New Midfield Terminal
There are plenty of new airports in the region, this one is my favorite. (Jedda new terminal is very ugly, and Hamad airport's $15+ billion tag is just ridiculous)
An amazing project with amazing designs and infrastructure, my only concern is that they exceeded the demand for that type of properties. I would love to see Jazerat Ala3raas, Moderyat Alistkhbarat(camp adalah), Qasir Alzuhoor or ex-Olympic comity on Palestine st. turned to something like this but we probably would go with the Russian model Moscow-International Business Center
Berlin-City Palace Reconstruction
No major city suffered a war destruction more than Berlin, and here is a good example of restoring the old glory.
Tehran-District 22's Parks
Since Bassmaya is under construction, I think this is an appropriate project to be posted here, Tehran built a new district and the did not forget about the recreational aspect. I'm afraid that Bassmaya residents will end up with bunch of broken swings in a sandy field.
