Thank you all at the House of Architecture“ and Director Prof. Heba Eldeen for your support and allowing us to use the location to work with …

The House of Architecture in Islamic Cairo area of Darb Al Labana is a wonderful example of vernacular architecture and climate control design. It is fascinating to experience how the compact stone building with “Mashrabiya”, Light wells, courtyards with water pools controls and distributes daylight and natural ventilation to achieve a micro climatical world of quiet comfort in the megapolis.
The house offered the students a diversity of small and big spaces to try out different lighting scenarios.

Thank you students for the concentrated work through out the semester, a small exhibition is coming!
And of course thank you TA Mai Tarek…
