Lecture Series: LANDSCAPING EGYPT_From the aesthetic to the productive

In Academic, Sunday, October 16, 2016

Guest Lecturer Sherif Hosny, Schaduf Roofscapes- Rooftop Gardens and urban Agriculture

Egypt is one of the oldest civilizations, rich in natural and manmade landscapes of genuine beauty. Despite the long tradition and history of landscaping in Egypt which is both productive and aesthetic, current landscape designs are mainly focusing on ornamental qualities. With the GUC lecture series we want to look at landscape through the eyes of various practitioners, researchers and professionals in the field. We are inviting designers and a new generation of agriculturalists from Egypt and abroad to discuss potential synergies hidden within the contemporary landscapes of Egypt.
