Hany El Miniawy honored by International Union of Architects

Egyptian Fellow Hany El Miniawy was recently selected by the International Union of Architects as recipient of the 2008 Vassilis Sgoutas Prize, which recognizes architects contributing to the alleviation of poverty.

Through the construction of low-cost, environmentally friendly housing for low-income areas in Egypt, Hany transfers his knowledge and experience of building materials and techniques to youth living in impoverished areas. This provides them with employment in the short term and the capacity to replicate his work in their own communities, as the population of low-income Egypt continues to swell.

Many congratulations to Hany for his remarkable achievements and this important recognition!
