Rasem Badran’s influence is rapidly spreading throughout the developing world. Covering the full spectrum from urban planning to individual residences, his work is human-scaled, responsive to its environment and meets the social and cultural requirements of the people who use it. He is often seen as the natural successor to the seminal Egyptian architect Hassan Fathy.

This volume provides a thorough overview of Badran’s work, bringing together the architect’s own dramatic collection of drawings, plans and photographs, many seen here for the first time.

A comprehensive chronology of Badran’s work completes this fascinating survey of one of the most influential and revolutionary architects of our time.
