Most widely held works by Hassan Fathy
Architecture for the poor an experiment in rural Egypt by Hassan Fathy ( )
36 editions published between 1796 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Architecture for the Poor describes Hassan Fathy's plan for building the village of New Gourna, near Luxor, Egypt, without the use of more modern and expensive materials such as steel and concrete. Using mud bricks, the native technique that Fathy learned in Nubia, and such traditional Egyptian architectural designs as enclosed courtyards and vaulted roofing, Fathy worked with the villagers to tailor his designs to their needs. He taught them how to work with the bricks, supervised the erection of the buildings, and encouraged the revival of such ancient crafts as claustra (lattice designs in the mudwork) to adorn the buildings
Natural energy and vernacular architecture : principles and examples with reference to hot arid climates by Hassan Fathy ( Book )
12 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The field of vernacular architecture offers an abundance of concepts that can be of use today in solving the critical housing situation now facing millions in the Third World. The example chosen to illustrate this by the UNU Energy Subprogramme covers the vernacular architecture of the hot, arid zones of the Arab World and neighboring regions. It was felt that the person best suited to prepare a monograph on this subject was Professor Hassan Fathy. Not only is Professor Fathy a master architect and an expert in the area of traditional architecture, especially in the Arab World, but he has been so for more than half a century. His work has also demonstrated the value that traditional architecture can have in improving the housing and living environments of the poor of the Third World. As a theoretician and practitioner of environmental planning design, Dr. Fathy's approach is based on a set of principles that are useful in opening the mind to the value of vernacular architecture and to adapting it to the situation in which a large fraction of the world's population find themselves today. Professor Fathy's approach is based on the concept that architectural form should be determined by spiritual, artistic, climatic, and social considerations as well as function, material, and structure. He emphasizes that due consideration must be given to a number of elements including harmony. -- from Foreword

An architecture for people : the complete works of Hassan Fathy by James Steele ( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is an account of Hassan Fathy, one of the most influential Third World architects of the 20th century. The ideas he formulated before his death in 1989 have become key elements in the global architectural agenda, with his influence being particularly profound in the developing world. Fathy's buildings are found all over the world, from Egypt to India to New Mexico. The author was able to conduct extensive interviews with Fathy himself before he died, as well as with clients, family, disciples and friends. The author's research in Cairo and Greece (where Fathy worked from 1957-1962) uncovered many previously undocumented projects and he has drawn on the architect's personal notebooks and journals. Fathy's entire career is chronologically surveyed from his graduation in 1926 to the most productive period of his life - the two decades after his return to Egypt in 1962
