Blog Archive Urban Sketchers fight for Alexandria’s Architectural Heritage

Blob

The ‘Description of Alexandria’ is a cultural and artistic project carried out by a team of volunteer sketchers and documenters that seeks to record the remains of cosmopolitan Alexandria and its architectural heritage.

Artist and architect, Mohamad Gohar, founded the project more than 4 years ago with the aim of raising awareness about the threat posed to Alexandria’s cityscape by urban developers, as well as documenting the current and former architectural face of the city.
