Imhotep today : Egyptianizing architecture ( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work presents and analyses the results of the use and adaptation of ancient Egyptian architecture in modern times. It traces the use of ancient Egyptian motifs and constructions across the world, from Australia, the Americas and Southern Africa to Western Europe, and also enquires into the cultural, economic and social contexts of this practice. The text fills a gap in the literature not only due to its global coverage, but also in its analyses of thorny questions such as: what was it about Ancient Egypt that inspired such Egyptianizing monuments, and was it just one idea, or several different ones which formed the basis of such activities? The book also asks why only certain images, such as obelisks and sphinxes, were incorporated within the movement. The authors explore how these "monuments" fitted into the local architecture of the time and, in this context, they investigate whether "Egyptianizing architecture" is an ongoing movement and, if so, how it differs from earlier activities of such a kind

3 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Le Louxor, conçu au cœur du quartier Barbès à Paris en 1920, est l'unique exemple de cinéma de style égyptisant teinté d'Art Déco subsistant en France. Inscrit en 1981, acquis ensuite par la Ville de Paris, il a fait l'objet en 2007 d'un appel d'offres pour sa restauration. Celui-ci a été remporté par Philippe Pumain associé à l'agence Fabre et Speller spécialisée dans les salles de spectacle et à qui l'on doit récemment la salle de concert du théâtre Mariinsky à Saint-Pétersbourg. La restauration du Louxor entamée en 2008 est achevée à la mi-mars 2013. La Mission Cinéma de la Ville de Paris et une équipe de spécialistes ont été mobilisées autour du maître d'œuvre pour redonner au monument son lustre d'origine et pour définir un programme qui assure une fréquentation du public
