Cityscape Egypt 2023 is excited to host the Cityscape Architecture Workshop - Powered by The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

What is a charette?

A charette is a fast-paced brainstorming session designed to create an original design solution to an issue. It is a powerful, quick, and engaging approach to illustrate how design and place-making abilities can benefit cities and their citizens.

What’s the theme?

Sustainable Transport Solutions for Egypt


What’s the design charette happening as a part of Cityscape Egypt all about?

Cityscape and RIBA believe that future architects play a critical role in achieving net zero design and sustainability and that they must be included at the forefront of discussions around these important topics.

Students from three RIBA-validated architecture courses in Egypt will participate in the event:

·       AAST Alexandria

·       AAST Cairo

·       AAST Smart Village

Day 1: Friday, 22 September 2023

·       The student teams will participate in a 4-hour brain-storming session to create and propose “one big idea or intervention” to tackle one of the most pressing challenges of designing sustainable transport solutions  


Day 2: Saturday, 23 September 2023

·       Live Design Review: Team leaders will present the proposals to the judges, and the audience with a live discussion and debate amongst each other
