Nobody can go back and start a new begining, but anyone can start today make a new ending Maria Robinson

Traditional juvenile centers acts like preservation facility (prison), and social barrier

Juveniles are treated equally without taking into consideration their mental and psychological needs and status

Juveniles in traditional facilities are isolated from outer world

people are born with a blank page and through how they are nurtured and socialized they attain good or bad page. juvenile attained the bad page according to their environment that they have been exposed to and their experiences in life. according to theories this project deals with delinquent juveniles that their environment drove them down towards practicing wrong behavioral patterns and taking the wrong path, this project brings these juvenile back to the natural state without being affected by their negative environments triggers, they must go through a process that modify their behavior from negative to positive through neutralizing it and then improve it to make of him a good citizens.

this idea is translated into categorizing the functions in to three main categories: 1-therapy (social & psychological) neutralizing the delinquent juveniles. 2-rehabeletation (social, educational and vocational)transitional state which neutralized delinquents by modifying his behavioral pattern from neutral to positive state. 3-self express makes juvenile express himself and show his positive side as a member in the society and see how this program benefited him. social learning theory juvenile delinquency is the result of imitation of aggressive actions. placing an individual in favorable environment where he/she would be less tempted to imitate violent behavior. general strain theory the major causes of juvenile delinquency are aversive atmosphere at home an school. a society instills in its citizenry aspirations for upward mobility and a desire for selected goals. however, when legitimate avenues to goal attainment are blocked, anomie or strain sets in. behavioral theory: reinforcement or punishment or extinction should be treated for their special requirements in groups established according to their needs.

After considering the forces affecting the site starting with the main street. Which forced the project to be shifted to the back avoiding the noise and provide space for circulation and parking. The main part of the building was the hospital and its placed parallel to the street were the other tow parts (emergency & out patients) were placed perpendicular on the edge of the hospital to be visible. The facades of the hospital reflect the order and functionality of the project. The elevations are simple, direct and linear. Graduation Project

Site Plan

Section A-A a sport is about two teams aiming one goal, since sports hall needs only artificial light and/or indirect light, the design took this orientation which perpendicular to the north. overcoming this challenge the structure of the building was separated in the middle and shifted to emphasize it, the southern part was raised higher than the northern avoiding direct sun rays. this shifting in the structure created two entrances to serve the function. the structure was covered by light material called ETFE foil panels, this material was chosen because its is durable, self clean and it is easily maintained.

Each is locate in the center of a residential zone making it approachable for everyone. 3.Commercial zones (high, medium and low density) are mainly grouped around the main spine profiling the identity of the city. Residential zones, on the other hand, are pushed away from the commercial zones with the use of the urban parks and green areas. 4.Green areas are added to service zones .5.Hotels are located in the beginning of the city since they are basically for tourists. see figure (1,2). Rotation of the spine: •Site orientation to those passing beside from/to the airport.•Decrease the speed on the high way making passengers enjoy our site.•Create visual connection between the upper and lower (boulevard) level of the bridge. see figure (3). Transformation of spine into the bridge: 1.Emphasize on the importance of the train track which is intended to be reconstructed. 2.Decrease noise and pollution through the site.see figure (4).

Environmental Concept: 1.Solar plates are placed in the site to provide all the electrical needs of the city. 2.Recycle zone reprocesses water to be exploited in green lands. 3.Wind turbines are placed on the highest level of the site for energy production 4.Main tank to harvest rainwater and serve the city. see figure (5). Environmental strategies: Bearing in mind that this is a metropolitan city green roofs, white buildings, and widely distributed green areas were integrated within city strategies to reduce amount of heat stored. Infra-structure layout was taken in consideration and given priority in location. Districts that supply the site (solar plates, water tanks, and wind-mills) was located at the highest point of the site. Recycling and waste areas where located on the lower point; where sewage is recycled and reused for green houses that surrounds that separates waste area from residential area. seef igure (6).

through site analysis one of the main pedestrian circulation in the context was taken into consideration in high level, since it is adjacent to the site. other circulation axes found next to the context, which it is reflected by a crack that penetrates and intersects creating the threshold of the building. in order to break the rigidity of this crack, the elevation adapted lighter material that interacts with this crack which formed harmony between solid and void.
