The modern architecture of Cairo Road inspired the project team to go on a journey to ask and answer questions on the history of one of the oldest roads in Lusaka. The main goal of this project is to document Cairo Road’s urbanism and architectural histories. The documentation led the team down rabbit holes of books, research papers, national archives, local libraries and lots of street walks. The team interviewed historians, professors and practioners to gather information and locate information sources. The project is part of the ongoing collaboration between the Charter Cities Institute (CCI) and the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development (MLGRD) on the future of urban development in Zambia.
