Evolution of Cairo: Downtown Reimagined

Ewart Memorial Hall

A new trajectory has been mobilizing in downtown Cairo for over a decade. From new boutique hotels, Airbnb, coworking spaces and experimental designs in passageways and urban pockets, today downtown has a different typology of landmarks. The splendor of heritage is coupled with a spirit of creative innovation and adaptive reuse of existing buildings. "As eclectic as it may seem- and not devoid of some space for criticality- it is gradually evolving with multiple modalities of spatial transformation- from scales of space by space to building by building and through the streetscape".

Access to the event is on a first-come, first-served basis, and according to hall capacity.
