Art + Education

AFS educates the public, practitioners and government policy makers about the specific problems as well as the positive contributions these disadvantaged communities have made to their built environments.

Artists Statement

Amro Sallam

As an architect/ artist, an Egyptian/ American my work reflects the dynamics between independent forces which at times are rendered harmonious. These forces are so vivid in my research of the Cairo’s urban condition.

Sonal Mitha

My work treats the phenomenon of landscape as temporal—that which is being constantly produced by environmental and social forces, which themselves are in constant flux.
