UIA supports the maspero triangle competition in Cairo


The Egyptian Ministry for Urban Renewal and Informal Settlements (MURIS) and the Cairo Governorate are organising an international competition by invitation to design a master plan for the Maspero Triangle, a 35 ha land in central Cairo that homes over 14,000 residents.

The goal of the competition is to develop a model urban planning concept that encourages mixity in the community, preserves heritage, protects the environment, and does not inspire a gentrification that would strip inhabitants of their diversities.

This pilot project should serve as a guide for other developments in Cairo.
