The design brief for the competition of Science City was to create a set of buildings and spaces that will be inspiring inside and out, express a particular vision of the quest for knowledge and the pursuit of science. With this approach in mind, the Library of Alexandria endorsed a Science City project by organizing an open, one stage international architectural competition for the comprehensive master plan and conceptual design.

About winning, Chris Williamson, one of the Founders of WW+P said, “Egypt has a unique cultural heritage, and 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.”

The new Science City complex will be built on the western edge of Cairo, and calls for an entirely new integrated master plan and conceptual design that will ultimately create the first 21st century science museum, learning and research facility in Egypt. The design was very much a team effort but the majority of the thinking, the strategy and the days – and a few nights – to produce this amazing scheme was down to Phil Turner who will now help to develop the design through to completion.
