Hassan Fathy Architectural Records
Hassan Fathy is considered by many to be one of the greatest Egyptian architects of the 20th century, known for employing both traditional building materials and architectural features.
The Creating a Center for Architectural Archives in Egypt: Preservation and Access for the Papers of Hassan Fathy and Ramses Wissa Wassef project was made possible with funding from Grants to Preserve and Create Access to Humanities Collections of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

- ↑ Refers to exterior faces of a building which are substantially in one plane and seem to have been designed with special regard to their conspicuousness or association with entrance. Distinct from "elevations (building divisions)," which may constitute any side or face of a building or large interior space.
- ↑ Level paved or planted areas, usually elevated above surrounding terrain and adjacent to buildings or parts of garden complexes.
- ↑ Refers to all forms of parallel projection, particularly where at least one of the three spatial axes is inclined to the plane of projection or picture surface. It is often used to refer to projections depicted as if a plan were drawn to scale, and the plan is then tilted at a 45 degree angle to provide a third dimension, typically height, which is drawn to the same scale as the plan. This system for projection depicts both the plan and volume simultaneously and with a consistent measurement, without the distortion caused by the converging lines of one-point perspective.
- ↑ Orthographic drawings that depict a building, object, or site as if cut transversely.
- ↑ Drawings of construction or design details. For minute parts of a larger structure, object, or image, use "details." For preparatory studies of pictorial or design details, use "detail studies."
- ↑ Scaled floor plans showing electrical layout; may include an adjacent small drawing of an elevation, or a riser diagram. For other drawings of electrical systems, use "electrical drawings."
- ↑ Describes the sides or faces of a building or large interior space, however irregular, emphasizing their appearance; as distinct from "facades," which usually constitute only those external faces which are substantially in one plane, and appear to have been designed with special regard to their conspicuousness or association with an entrance.
- ↑ Drawings or works in another two-dimensional medium that represent a horizontal section through a building taken above a floor to diagramatically illustrate the enclosing walls, interior spaces, doors, and windows of a building.
- ↑ Floor plans taken near ground level and showing the foundation and ground floor of the building.
- ↑ The formal concept of the layout of spaces and elements in the built environment, such as of a building or city.
- ↑ Refers to drawings or works in any other two-dimensional medium that employ perspective, meaning that they are executed by a systematic technique that creates the illusion of recession from a two-dimensional surface.
- ↑ Drawings or works in another medium laying out the precise arrangement of a structure on a plot of land. It may also refer to plans for gardens, groups of buildings, or developments, where the layout of buildings, roadways, utilities, landscape elements, topography, water features, and vegetation may be depicted. For drawings or other representations on a horizontal surface of cities or larger areas, particularly when such representations are not part of a design process, use "plans (maps)."
- ↑ Drawings that pertain specifically to the structural layout of a building.
