“Learn-Move-Play-Ground. Improving courtyards of public primary schools in Cairo” is a format for summer schools initiated and organised by Barbara Pampe and Vittoria Capresi (GUC, Architecture and Urban Design Program) in cooperation with several local and German partners, fully financed by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the DAAD – the German Academic Exchange Service. LMPG aims at improving the courtyards of public primary schools in Cairo, through the participation with the children and the teachers.
During an intensive hands-on workshop, students from Germany and Egypt work together with the children, teachers of the schools and the team, to find out how to translate the dreams of the children in playing elements. Using bricks, concrete, wood and colors we create different spaces to play, move and learn.

LMPG 1 was in cooperation with Susanne Hofmann and the Baupiloten (TU Berlin) and Omar Nagati (CLUSTER Cairo); and took place in El Kods school in Ard el Lewa and Kobbet el Hewa school in Shubra.
LMPG 2 was in cooperation with Thomas Coelen (University of Siegen, faculty of Educational Science), Megawra and UNHCR; and took place in the Asmaa Bint Bakr School in New Cairo and in the Shagarat Al Durr School in Islamic Cairo.
LMPG 3 is fully financed by and in cooperation with UNHCR; and is taking place in the Al Sayeda Hadiga school in the area of Ain Shams.
