The Tarek Waly Center, Architecture & Heritage was founded in 1998 to create a vision for the historic quarter of Cairo.
Since then we have established ourselves as a heritage planning practice with a portfolio of almost twenty heritage sites including the Giza Pyramids World Heritage Site.
Our interests and experience cover;
- Research on the historic value of a site or place in the form of a complete overview and time-line
- Urban and architectural design and design-guidelines for the immediate and surrounding built environment
- Design of the visitor experience
