Weston Williamson + Partners win international science building project

Weston Williamson + Partners were today announced the winners of the Science City International Architectural Competition in Cairo, Egypt

Organised by the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, judged by a panel of world-leading academics and science entrepreneurs, this was a one-stage open international competition for a comprehensive plan and conceptual design. Bibliotheca Alexandrina are experienced in delivering high-quality cultural projects.

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 organising an open, one stage international architectural competition for the comprehensive master plan and conceptual design.

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.

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
