  • This project is a BLIND COPY of her project Cairo Expo City in Egypt.

    It really amazes me how the SAME design approach is being used in 2 completely different contexts (China and Egypt)....yielding the same outcome for both locations.

    A little more contextual customization would have been more meaningful.


    If you look up "Cairo Expo City" on google images, and compare to the images in this article,...you'll know what I mean.
