The amazing heritage we have from different periods has traveled through time, sometimes as is, others with modifications. Taste, rulers and foreign immigration had a lot of influence on the way Cairo was shaped. Let’s contemplate together Cairo houses in Mamlouk, Ottman time and following periods in light of the theme of restoration. How did the houses then resonate with Cairo’s identity? How do we see Cairo's identity today? Is it the same, or has it changed? How to preserve and revive Cairo’s rich heritage in our buildings and homes.
