The Tamayouz Excellence Award has revealed its shortlist of finalists for Women in Architecture and Construction 2019, given to emerging female contributors in the architectural and construction field throughout the Near East and North Africa.

It was an inspiring experience to review the hard work of these outstanding women whose devotion gives us hope for a better future for our region.
