At this point, we have still received no contact from Egypt. John is in Egypt, supposedly making contact with the university in Egypt to finalise the project. In the meantime, we have been working with Owen Stickler on identifying classifications of culture, what are the elements which contribute to culture and form the characteristics of a place. Having finished the Cardiff end of the project, we are looking more at the Egypt side of the project anticipating John’s return and the arrival of the Egyptian sites for us to work on. We discussed sensitivities surrounding culture – particularly when it is a culture unlike your own. Having researched Egyptian culture and religions, we mapped out potential dos and don’ts for our designs.
Now all there is to do is to wait for the sites!
