Ramzy Omar was born in El Mansoura on September 8th, 1916. He received his primary education in several different cities depending on his father’s work and continued his secondary education at the Saidiya School in Giza.
His relationship with Architecture began with a sentence his Art teacher said when he was 11 years old. He said more than once, “My son, you have to be an Architect.” His teacher was Mr. Youssef Afifi and he had just returned from an educational journey in England. Mr. Afifi had a talent for Art that encouraged Ramzy Omar to become an Architect.
He continued to nurture his hopes of becoming an Architect throughout his secondary education and helped guide the way in order for him to realize the right career path in order to pursue his future.
Ramzy Omar started seeing himself attending the College of Engineering and studying Architecture and excelling at it. He also dreamed that he would travel abroad to study and return to teach Architecture. These dreams filled him with thoughts of happiness and encouraged him to outdo himself during his studies.
