Weston Williamson has won an international design competition for Cairo’s Science City beating Zaha Hadid Architects.
The project which will involve a new integrated masterplan will be a national institute for scientific innovation. It will be built in a new town on the edge of the Egyptian capital called “6th of October City”.
Chris Williamson, one of the founders of WW&P and a WAN Awards 2016 Transport judge, said: “We are proud to have won. Needless to say that Egypt has a unique cultural heritage, but we were also attracted by the ambition of the project, clearly expressed through the brief.
“We look forward to developing the design and creating something worthy for Egypt’s future generations.”
