Based on the cultural heritage, TUTERA sets new trends and designs for the world in seven branches: architecture, urban design, furniture, fashion, jewelry, vehicle design, and film production. All designs are based on historical references of ancient Egypt, using the correct meanings, symbols, and architectural and art vocabulary of the ancient Egyptian civilization used at the time, as it is the first cradle and the original roots of civilization.
The city’s design idea is based on being a world-class tourist city, and what makes it a unique city is that it is the first city based on outer space tourism. The planning idea of the city is based on creating major axes that reach the city center and its main building and these axes perpendicular to the four original directions indicating The ancient Egyptians were among the first to work in astronomy, understood it, and showed their knowledge and strength in their architecture. On the main city axes, a group of multi-use buildings are lined up in preparation for the main building in the city center, which is a pyramid-shaped building that dominates the city.
