First Hebrew translation of the worldly acclaimed and well loved 1969 book by the greatest Egyptian architecture of the modern age.


Egyptian architect Hassan Fathy (1900-1989) was a ground-breaking revolutionary who challenged the ear of cement and modern technology, went back to building with mud and adobe in humane community design, and restored local desert architecture of adobe houses.
