City Plate - Cairo

$50.00
Part of our first series of City Plates.  The theme of the first collection is "City as Gateway," and the cities chosen are Los Angeles, Shanghai, Cairo and Berlin.  With this theme we ask: how is each city dealing with the effects of agglomeration as its population begins to reach critical mass?

Situated at the center of three continents, Cairo, Egypt's largest city, is also the cultural center of the Middle East.  The majestic Nile River runs dramatically through the middle of the plate design, while the vast desert sits just outside the city's border.  The 1863 completion of the Suez Canal brought a large number of Westerners, along with significant investment.  It also brought a re-imagining of the city's center, transforming Cairo into the modern megalopolis it is today.
