Hassan Fathy is Egypt’s best-known 20th-cen­tu­ry archi­tect. He was also a man of con­tra­dic­tions. He came from a wealt­hy back­ground and had a wes­tern-style trai­ning. Yet he embraced tra­di­tio­nal, ver­na­cu­lar forms, tech­ni­ques, and mate­ri­als and throug­hout his care­er pro­mo­ted their use as part of a cam­pai­gn to impro­ve the con­di­ti­ons of Egypt’s rural poor.

Earth & Uto­pia chro­ni­cles this lifelong com­mit­ment through per­so­nal inter­views con­duc­ted by the aut­hor, pho­to­graphs, and drawings from the Hassan Fathy archi­ves, and Fathy’s own wri­tings on the sub­ject, many of which are published for the first time. This beau­ti­ful, fasci­na­ting, and scho­l­ar­ly book will be essen­ti­al rea­ding for stu­dents, aca­de­mics, and gene­ral readers inte­rested in Fathy, and the deve­lop­ment of Arab and ver­na­cu­lar archi­tec­tu­re, earth con­struc­tion, archi­tec­tu­re for the poor, and sustai­na­bi­li­ty.
