La mission de la dernière chance pour sauver Nouveau Gourna

L'association internationale Save the heritage of Hassan Fathy qui s'est constituée à Genève le 28 février 2008 organise la mission de la dernière chance pour sauver le Nouveau Gourna de Hassan Fathy. Ce village qui est l'oeuvre majeure de l'architecte célébré internationalement et récompensé par plusieurs prix internationaux dont le Grand Prix de la Fondation Aga Khan est en ruines. Quand bien même il a servi de modèle au monde entier, des Amériques à l'Afrique subsaharienne, en passant par l'Asie, il est actuellement dans un état de dégradation avancée. La mission de la dernière chance est entièrement bénévole et l'Association Save the heritage of Hassan Fathy espère réussir à mettre en route un processus de réflexion quant au réusage et à la restauration du village. Tout sponsoring est bienvenu.

Mission to New Gourna

 

Goal


The International Association Save the heritage of Hassan Fathy (Geneva) was created in February 2008 to safeguard and preserve the remaining works of the great Egyptian architect, Hassan Fathy. It beneficiates, since April 2008, of the support of H. E. Madam Suzanne Mubarak.

Since its creation, many individual members, Institutions and Universities from all over the world have subscribed to the Save the Heritage of Hassan Fathy and their number is increasing daily.

Our main objective today is to carry out an expertise assessment of  New Gourna Village.  Indeed, this outstanding realisation is one of Hassan Fathy's most famous projects. The international and national opinion is now calling for a restoration project of New Gourna Village. Besides preserving a cultural world heritage, the project could constitute a very attractive element in the framework of the ongoing touristical development of Thebes and its Necropolis.
