      • Hassan Fathy's New Gourna


        from Oliver Wilkins Added 15.5K 198 84

        The village of New Gourna was designed and built in the 1940s by the Egyptian Architect Hassan Fathy. He pioneered the use of sustainable materials and environmentally friendly design to build housing for low income families who were being relocated from their original village at Old Gourna. 60 years later, many of the now historic New Gourna buildings have fallen into disrepair and others have disappeared or been changed beyond recognition. A project is underway to safeguard the site, and World Monuments Fund (WMF) commissioned us to produce a film presenting the perspective of the residents… For more information about WMF’s work at New Gourna, see http://www.wmf.org/project/new-gourna-village
