Cultural Engineering

About Us

Studio CE is a practice that has tasked itself over the last decade with advancing the identity of cities across the Middle East and North Africa.

As urban areas continue to shape cultures globally, cities such as Dubai play a pivotal role in translating and transmitting the region’s culture globally. Cultural Engineering responds to this through three key disciplines; Research, Education, and Urbanism. As a result, it has been recognised for doing this through its nomination for the Agha Khan awards for architecture in 2010.

Ahmed and Rashid bin Shabib are both urbanists and founders of Studio CE. They each hold degrees from the University of Oxford in the field of Urbanism.
