The Bir Tawil, located on the border between Sudan and Egypt, is considered the most undesired territory of land in the world. Since the land has no direct access to water, the surrounding countries, Egypt and Sudan, do not want to claim it. For either of them to claim Bir Tawil would be to relinquish their claim to the Hala’ib Triangle, an area of land closest to the Red Sea.

Problems concerning this territory include: lack of access to water, vegetation, and dry, hot climate. Bir Tawil is a land-locked area approximately 400 miles from the Red Sea, the nearest body of water. Its dry land consists of no vegetation or existing plant life, making it deemed useless.

By creating a landscraper/skyscraper hybrid, our building, The Hyrdra, will enable a water filtration system connecting through the Red Sea, in order to create a sustainable, living environment. By filtering water from the Red Sea into fresh, drinkable water, this will allow life to exist in this area.

The Hydra building, named for its ability to provide water and “hydrate” a desert oasis, functions similar to the human heart. Conceptually, its design was based off of the different valves and structure of a heart organ. Similarly, the Hydra pumps water to the different stations, just as a heart pumps water to the different systems throughout the human body.

The building has openings that allow filtration of air and light; pores throughout the entire façade open and close when the climate is too warm. Solar panels generate power within the infrastructure. Since it is a sustainable space, which filters all of its fresh water supply, it allows vegetation to flourish. Connecting the Bir Tawil to the Red Sea through an underground connection enables multiple towers to become linked together, creating a network of structures to allow a faster filtration process.
