Paper Abstract

The role of heritage religious buildings in achieving sustainable development in ancient cities , case study Cairo City Abstract : Sustainable development is the main option (if not the only one) for humanity to obtain realistic solutions to its current and future urban problems. Successful human societies have reached where they are as a natural result of understanding their local problems and as a natural reaction to employing their investments and resources in order to develop society and adopt methods for developing it. The research paper presents the actual value of the Egyptian heritage religious buildings and the need to activate their role in urban development projects that were affected by planning theories and imported architectural styles, and as a result our Arab cities suffer from a state of alienation. The research reviews the Egyptian experience in relying on foreign expertise in urban development projects for ancient cities and the influence of local architecture by Western styles. As a result of the cultural decline in our country, our cities suffered from negative planning aspects, especially the old city of Cairo, as a result of the incompleteness of development projects, the isolation of new residential communities, and the decline of the role of the old city center. The research is concerned with presenting the role of traditional planning theories and heritage religious architecture in achieving communication between the architecture of the past, present and future and its importance in light of the contemporary civilizational race. The research is also interested in presenting the role of sustainable development projects in activating communication between the architecture of the past, present and future, and the negative impact of contemporary local projects in heritage areas in Cairo as a Case Study . The application of city planning and its practice in accordance with the concept of international modernity and its isolation from the components of the local religious heritage in the Arab countries had many negative effects, as foreign ideas alone dominated the new engineering specializations. Therefore, there is an inevitability for modernity to enter a new phase in its history after it cost us high prices during previous experiences in our country. Under the umbrella of developing city plans and architecture in a modern manner and applying imported urban and architectural theories during development projects, the product was far from the human level. The research paper aims to present the problems of the ancient Arab city, which lost its identity as a result of the isolation that occurred in its ancient and modern parts as well, during separate projects that were not carefully studied and planning coma over decades of years. By presenting some current experiences and analyzing the character of the ancient and modern Arab city, several results can be reached, namely the development of local planning theories with the aim of preserving the special identity of the ancient Arab city in an attempt to achieve development based on sustainable development projects that achieve planning and architectural communication between the past, present and future. By analyzing sustainable development projects, which are characterized by a realistic concept, the research can develop a set of results and recommendations that help improve development projects in contemporary ancient cities and ensure the success of future projects. Keywords: sustainable development - preserving the special identity of the Arab city - culture as a source of sustainability - architectural and planning communication between the past, present and future.
