What is it about?

This paper revisits the concept of singularity, focusing on the kinetic perception of visual aspects. Following a review of the relevant literature that explores the elements that can create unique forms based on Western paradigms, we analyse empirically the conceptual framework of singularity through a comparison between two Egyptian cases.

Why is it important?

The results show five sets of findings related to the way of thinking, the design ideas, the roles of stakeholders, learning the history and the design-oriented approach. Revisiting the criterion of singularity merges multiple paradigms of cities as products and artworks. We figure out in the main conclusion that our replicable framework can potentially be used in other cities in terms of urban policies that explain the authorities' roles and areas of specialisation.
