Booth in a Box




Wadi Environmetnal Science Centre (WESC)  in collaboration with Magaz Design Magazine and under the auspices of The Ministry of State for Environmental Affairs organized a competition for design students titled ‘Booth in a Box.’ The objective of the competition was, besides gathering architectural ideas for a booth that can represent WESC in local and international events, to promote students’ creativity while raising their awareness of environmental aspects in design. The Challenge was to conceptualize and design a booth that represents WESC for fairs and events that is easy to assemble and move while being environmentally sensitive. The competition was open to undergraduate students from all engineering and fine arts universities in Egypt. The Jury, which concluded its evaluations last May, included Dr. Aly Hatem Gabr, Cairo University, Dr Ahmed Sherif, American University Cairo, Dr. Ayman Wanas, Arab Academy of Science & Technology, Dr. Heba Safieldin, Misr International University, Dr. Amr Abdel Kawi, Magaz Magazine, and Lynn Freiji, WESC. Though the number of participants was not very large still the jury was impressed with the creativity that was reflected in several of the projects.
