A lecture by AGNIESZKA DOBROWOLSKA, ARCHiNOS Architecture
The lecture will present traditional Egyptian craft in a very special location in Cairo: the area around the iconic complex of the great Sultan al-Asraf Qaitbey, a masterpiece of medieval Islamic architecture located within the “City of the Dead”.
A conservation project was carried out in 2014 in a section of Sultan Qaitbey’s complex within the “City of the Dead” in Cairo – a medieval building created in 1474 as a charity to distribute drinking water to animals. The project was affiliated to the German Archaeological Institute, and combined conservation of architectural heritage with promoting traditional crafts in the area.
