About

symp

Ahmed Helal is an architecture student at The Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture In New York City; he is in his last academic year and has a GPA of 3.99. Ahmed has been studying architecture for the past 6 years between Cairo, London, Volos, and New York. He has studied in three different schools of architecture before The Spitzer School in NYC. He attended MSA University in Cairo, Egypt, Greenwich University in London, England, and the University of Thessaly in Volos, Greece. Ahmed has always been involved in pursuing architecture outside the academic sphere, he participated in various architecture competitions, as well as practicing architecture as an intern.

Throughout his academic journey, Ahmed was interested in how architecture crossed paths with other fields that interested him, such as photography, filmmaking, and philosophy. While photography and filmmaking were assets to him in ‘how’ to do things, philosophy responded to the ‘why’ things should be done.
