Explanation of the architects (Snohetta):

This expo center is located in the heart of one of the world's greatest cities.
On this vast site, the harsh reality of Cairo's urbanity is mirrored in the crisp exterior perimeter and contrasted by the soft flowing natural forms traversing the interior of the site. All the components of the expo center are organized along this man-made valley that flows across the site. Linking it to the neighboring convention center.

category:commercial
typology:Mixed use- expo congress, shopping mall, hotel-bussiness and leisure
size:600 000 m2
