But WHY did we choose Mohandessin for our studio and arts residency!?
Mohadessin has been subject to a constantly transformation, although it was founded only 55 years ago. During this time many economical, political and social changes occurred. In cause of the Egyptian revolution in 1952 the population increased by the emigrants from the rural villages. The district turn from a scenically villa neighborhood to a crowded social residential block district. Later Mohandessin became an attraction point for new business due to its location and the efficient connection to the infrastructure of Cairo. In the last 10 years it is turning into a high dense central business district. Many Egyptian families moved to Mohandessin in 1970/80 and belt their family houses. Till now they still living here with their families and keeping with them the history of the area and the modern history of Cairo.
