HASSAN FATTY, Vernacular Architecture , EGYPT


During the beginning of modern architecture, when Le Corbusier proclaims that the use of materials such as plate glass, steel and reinforced concrete as well as the image of industrial age, were the basis of all revolutionary change that he proposed. For HASSAN FATTY the space that could created by using such technological advancement had social corrective potential, and honestly of expression in the use of technology was considered to be an essential prerequisite to a brighter future.

Rather then believing in this, Fathy felt that human being, nature and architecture should coexist in harmonious balance.

For him, architecture was a communal art, that should reflect the personal habits and traditions of a community rather than reforming them.

He felt that technology should be subservient to social values, and appropriate to popular needs.
