The Workshop of Maq'ad* Mamay (AH901 / AD1496)
This structure, today known as the Bayt al-Qadi, was built by one of Sultan Qaytbay's amirs and was probably part of a large palace with a courtyard at its center. Currently it's abandoned or underused.
*Maq'ad: It was used to describe the men reception area in houses/palaces at that time.
The Workshop aims to explore ideas to reuse the building and to find ways to reconnect the building with the surrounding context.
The workshop will take place in the heart of the World Heritage Site of Historic Cairo.
