Khaled Ibrahem Mohamed: The project idea was inspired by performance art, specically the study of ballet dancers' movements and stripping them down into lines and shapes to create the internal space, elements, and basic forms of theaters, using them as a general guideline for design, with the aim of generating a design that is characterized by dynamism.

In response to the Egyptian government's 2030 plan to develop the King Mariout Lake area in Alexandria, the Department of Architecture and Interior Design collaborated to propose a design for the Performing Arts Center as a graduation project for the Interior Architecture Department. The project includes" a plaza, reception area, lobby and lounge, atriums, foyers, opera house, 360-degree theater, practice rooms, rehearsal spaces, offices, exhibitions, and other spaces."

note: The architectural forms were created by Fayrouz Mohamed, as part of the cooperation between the Department of Architecture and the Decor Department at Alexandria University, Egypt.
