The recipient of Tamayouz Excellence Awards’ prize for women in architecture 2018, Rising Star, Egyptian architect Ebtissam Moustapha established her architecture and design practice six years ago to challenge the “conventional model of design production in Egypt” through advanced technology, research and fostering collaboration between education, practice and manufacturers. Hoping to nurture an international hub of design that can thrive in today’s economy, Encode offers architecture, design and furniture design services. Moustapha’s architectural projects include Namma residences, Ceaser Bay and the rehabilitation of Sednaoui Al Khazendar, all of which are in Egypt. Simultaneously, she also lectures at the Fine Arts Department of Architecture at Alexandria University.
