The theme of the exhibition for the 2020 session bears the idea of designing and implementing an architectural project that embodies “How will we live together.” Within the pavilion dedicated to the exhibition, the winning project constitutes a symbolic "architectural" expression with three-dimensional technology, which symbolically expresses peaceful coexistence between common humble Egyptian people, “while emphasizing the importance of taking them into account in the future development strategies by planners, developers, and decision makers”.

This event represents the latest developments in contemporary international architecture, in which many countries of the world participate, and more than half a million visitors are frequenting their pavilions. The participating countries compete to show their best architectural works, by allocating a pavilion for each country in which the works of its designers are shown.

The winning project will be executed and supervised by Dr. Mostafa Khalifa, in the coming months, knowing that "the exhibition will open in the 23rd of May 2020, which will continue until the end of November for public. During this period, Dr. Mostafa Khalifa will be the official representative of the Arab Republic of Egypt.

Dr. Khalifa highlighted on the cooperation and the effort made by the members of his team, the architects Riyad Al-Halabi, Amr Allam and Ahmed Essam, to produce the work in a distinctive way.
