Dongola Mixed Use Development

A riverbank focal urban settlement aspiring to a new urban image informed by its history and formative tradition. The cuboid forms of its architecture, inter-stitched with closely knit network of road and public space establish the vocabulary of a newly conceived city center urban design form.

Dongola, Sudan,  was a province of Upper Nubia on both sides of the River Nile and the center for Nubian civilization from the Makurian and Islamic periods. The province of Dongola was part of the Makuria kingdom, which later became part of Egypt after Muhammad Ali Pasha ordered the invasion and occupation of Sudan in 1820 after which it was designated as a seat of a pasha.
