On July 30th AIA ME inaugurated its presence in Egypt with a presentation and tour of Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
The American Institute of Architects (Middle East Chapter) has expanded from its origins in the UAE to 9 MENA countries over the past 5 years, with Egypt being the home of the most recent extension of the chapter. Its mission is to extend the services of the AIA—headquartered in the United States—to its members in the MENA region and to uphold a high standard of design, education, and professional practice among its members.
The AIA ME seeks to foster an understanding of the differences in professional practices between the US and the Middle East. It also aspires to foster communications between AIA and its members who work and reside in the Middle East.
