Doha Ibrahim is an architect and urbanist based in Cairo, Egypt. Doha engages with multidisciplinary projects that concentrate on participatory design action and regenerating spaces in historic Cairo. Her work with local grassroots initiatives, and regional and international partners has intensified her knowledge of Cairo’s complex urban ecology. 

Passionate about breaking the colonial and post-colonial heritage narratives, Doha’s current research investigates the possibilities of conserving and archiving collective memory from the bottom using spatial and cultural practices. Her professional interests also expand into academia as she continues to serve as a teaching assistant at the Architecture and Urban Design department at the American University in Cairo. Doha aims to expand her work into investigating alternative pedagogies and developing ways of collective learning.
