ZUSAMMENFASSUNG
The outstanding architectural quality and character of Hassan Fathy's buildings and the positive effect of their images do not only come from its reliance upon traditional prototypes and deliberate plans, but also from the composition of their imposing exteriors. This book examines Fathy's buildings in terms of the principles, which the architect himself derived from his analysis of the architecture of both the Islamic-Arabic house and the Egyptian vernacular. The book also demonstrates the ways in which these principles underlie every aspect of his approach to design, and analyzes and discusses his designs for new communities, including his most celebrated project of New Gourna. Adopting an approach analogous to that employed for his buildings, Fathy used his analyses of traditional Arab village and urban plans as the basis for his own urban design principles. This book represents an essential reading for architects, architecture students, and the professionals. It also represents a source of inspiration for the public, who seek to establish an understanding to traditional architecture forms, materials, and method of construction.
