DPU alumna contributes to Egyptian Pavilion in 16th Venice Architecture Biennale

Salma Nassar

30 May 2018

We are extremely proud of Salma Nassar, the graduate of MSc Building and Urban Design in Development class 2017-16, for the amazing contribution to Egyptian Pavilion in 16th Venice Architecture Biennale. The Egyptian Pavilion ‘Roba becciah: The informal city’ respond to the theme of the Biennale ‘FREESPACE’ by exploring how urban markets redefine the concept of free space. Salma’s dissertation project the ‘Transit modes and the reincarnation of urban spaces into markets’ has developed under the supervision of prof. Julio Davila, and critically reflects on the typologies of urban markets in the city of Cairo and tackles the permanency and temporality of markets and their dispositional attributes in relation to the urban morphology. We are very pleased and proud to see the collaboration of Salma in the Egyptian Pavilion.
