Ehab Kamel is a lecturer and researcher in architecture and urban design, with over fifteen years of experience in both academia and practice.
Just after finishing his PhD at The University of Nottingham, UK, in 2011, Ehab moved to China to establish the University of Nottingham's Architecture programme at its overseas campus in Ningbo, China, where he spent three years before he joined UCLAN in June 2014.
Ehab is a registered architect (in Egypt) and urban designer; since 1998, he has worked on many urban and architectural design projects in the Middle East, North Africa, Asia, and Europe, leading design teams through several projects and winning architectural and urban design competitions.
Ehab's research concerned the interpretation management for the sustainable development of cultural heritage sites. His writings investigated Liverpool World Heritage Site (UK), Historic Cairo (Egypt), and The Imperial Street in Hangzhou (China), as well as criticising ICOMOS charters and UNESCO's criteria for World Heritage Sites' listing of cultural sites.
Currently, Ehab is researching the relation between city cultures, and users' perception and wellbeing, which investigates how design for culturally rich sites learn from the past to create sustainable environments. The applications vary from small-scale functional spaces (e.g. offices, pharmacies, etc.) to cultural city scapes.
