Mugamma' al-Adyan Project
Cairo, Egypt
The project is located in one of Cairo's most historic yet poverty-stricken areas, and involved the construction of a medieval-style market complex, a bus station serving 100,000 persons daily, and a fire station. 350 residential buildings were also renovated, involving lengthy infrastructure repair work (water, sewage, drainage, electricity, roofs, windows, staircases, fences, and facades), and the Suq El Fustat craft center was rebuilt and covered in brick and limestone. All work was carried out following traditional methods of bricklaying, stone cutting, and woodworking.
