Re-Designing AUC Centennial Regalia
“The American University in Cairo is a century old, and so as it’s regalia. My Project is an innovative Re-design of the commencement’s Cap and Gown that reflects the Future of the American University in Cairo. If we had a look upon the commencement photos of AUC within the last 100 years, we will come to a conclusion that almost the graduation caps and gowns were the same except of very minimal changes throughout the years. While looking through the photos of AUC graduation ceremonies ever since the beginning of the 20th century, I felt the urge that it is the right time to do some changes to the cap and gown. Changes that both represent our future vision and preserve the AUC identity with its academic heritage and color scheme. This directed me towards the aim of my project which is to create a futuristic look and design for the graduate to retain the feel of pride and belonging to such an honorable institution. A more lighter fabric for the ease of movement and an identity color chosen by students based on several surveys and questionnaires with a glimpse of a more modern design to serve the purpose. My project is from the students to the students, and the sense of belonging to the concrete academic history of AUC was the main inspiration behind my deliverable.
