PAUMME invites world-wide architectural students and professionals to present their work and discuss inno-vative design approaches. Exhibition and competi-tion as part of the Joint Event AGORA CAUMME 2020 will be held in German University in Cairo on November 25th – 29th 2020.

These difficult circumstances, which we live in everywhere in the world, require all of us, more than ever, to work hand in hand.

The world will be in dire need of architects who shape our world, how we think about it, and how we live in it. Architects create a society that is not only beautiful, but that is purposeful and practical as well. PAUMME will allow the opportunity of creativity and growth. We dream, and no one can prevent us from our dreams. Nothing will stop us!

We call on solidarity towards a better future. With that, we are pleased to launch the exhibition and competition PAUMME 2020 which will take place in the German University in Cairo on November 25th-29th, as part of a joint event AGORA CAUMME PAUMME 2020.
