YFA HQ Roof
Located in Maadi, Cairo, Egypt. As a part of our research and as we moved to our new HQ YFA decided to shade its roof.
The YFA HQ roof covers an area of 38 m2 on an 82 m2 roof on one of Maadi’s Main streets surrounded by residential buildings. A pavilion was designed to cover the roof of our building using vaulting technique to make the pavilion withstand its own weight.
To get a pavilion that would lift its own weight without a collapsing on itself we used coding and simulations and physics engines to optimize the pavilion to have the least support and minimal use of material.
