TEDxOudMetha event’s venue – Ismaili Centre was designed by renowned architects Rami El Dahan and Soheir Farid of El Dahan & Farid Engineering Consultants from Cairo, Egypt. The Centre facilitates the promotion of cultural, educational and social programmes from the broadest non-denominational perspectives and aims to foster mutual respect and understanding both within the Ummah and across society at large. To protect the architectural integrity of Ismaili Centre but at the same time, to make sure all visitors had full access to all participating areas of TEDx OudMetha event, Topland has provided custom made portable ramps for wheelchair users.
