Ahmed Mansour is an architect with a bachelor’s degree from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo, 2002. He received his M.Sc. in conservation of monuments and historical sites at the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (RLICC) at KU Leuven, Belgium in 2009. He has worked on projects concerned with the rehabilitation and re-use of historical buildings and the regeneration of traditional residential areas. From July 2010 to December 2014, Ahmed has been a UNESCO consultant within the Urban Regeneration for Historic Cairo project, aiming at developing a conservation and management plan for the World Heritage site of Historic Cairo. Since 2014, Ahmed worked on the documentation and rehabilitation projects of Heliopolis Hippodrome, Heliopolis company premises, Bab al-Azab - Citadel and privately-owned houses as well as the urban regeneration project of Darb al-Labbana. Ahmed was involved in a number of conservation and rehabilitation projects such as the Mausoleum of Imam al-Shafi’i and Shurafa, and as heritage industries coordinator at the Athar Lina Heritage Design Thinking School, a program that aims to use the heritage of al-Khalifa as a creative and economic resource for teenagers and young designers and craft-persons.
