An activity to help local artist human and a successful business model
This place gives you a hint about what concepts were embraced by Ramsis Wissa Wassef and Hassan Fathy in reflecting life in Egypt.. They were friends.. Wassef was an artist and Fathy was an architect .. they both had an interest in representing Egypt's culture as it should be.. taking into consideration the climate, the traditions, the local materials.. everything that belongs to the culture and not imported from outside.. You can see the beautiful rhythm given by domes and the game of shadow and light played inside the halls.. and in every area there's a sculpture showing a scene from a villager's life .. There's also a hall for handmade carpets and you can see locals working on it.. It was a nice experience .. the whole surrounding area was supposed to be like this centre but unfortunately the locals knocked down the small domed dwellings and built some ugly concrete high rises.. I was informed that Wassef's family are the ones taking care of the centre..they did a good job in that but who knows how long this place is going to hold on...
