Chris Williamson, co-founder of WW+P 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.” + Weston Williamson+Partners Via World Architecture News
