In the 1990 and 2000s, the Historic Cairo Project operating within the Egyptian Ministry of Culture restored more than a hundred important monuments in Historic Cairo. One of them was the Mamluk-period aqueduct that supplied water to the Citadel of Cairo, including its massive intake tower/pumping station.
In 2005, Agnieszka Dobrowolska, soon to become the founder and director of ARCHiNOS, was commissioned to design the re-use of the area of restored aqueduct as a public park. The concept design was produced and submitted to the client, but never developed further or carried out.
