The Alexandria and Mediterranean Research Center (Alex Med) organized a special workshop for the students of the three architecture departments of Alexandria University (Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Fine Arts), Pharos University in Alexandria (PUA), and the Arab Academy for Science and Technology.


This workshop comes as part of the celebration organized by the Center entitled “Bibliotheca Alexandrina: The Revival of a Legend.” Four students from the Architectural Engineering Department at PUA participated in the workshop, which included a discussion with the Norwegian architectural office “Snøhetta”. Through this discussion, a set of ideas were presented on how to develop the areas surrounding the Bibliotheca. The Norwegian team expressed their admiration for the ideas proposed.
