 Cairo, Egypt
Al Khalifa Community Center - Megawra


MEGAWRA is an architectural hub a space for young students and architects that is also coming to the public. It is a platform for holistic debate on the field of architecture and urbanism with a focus on it as art, theory, praxis and cultural heritage and its role in promoting sustainability and social responsibility in the built environment.


Megawra’s library has over 1000 books mostly on architecture, urbanism and art. This library was mostly made possible by the loan and donation of books from individuals and organizations. This is in addition to a collection of architectural magazines and periodicals with fairly comprehensive collections of local publications such as ‘Alam al-Bina’, Medina and Magaz. Our most recent acquisition was over 30 books on building types made possible by a grant from the Young Arab Theatre Fund. Library opening hours: 10:00 am – 16:00 pm. Closed on Friday and Saturday. By appointment between Sunday to Thursday, for appointments call: 01067021656
