The New Landscape discusses uniqueness of urbanization in the Third World and offers suggestions on channeling urbanization by incorporating vernacular elements such as incrementality and open to sky spaces. It asks the architects to become change agents to create the new urban landscape.
Egypt is known for pyramids and pharaohs. It is also where an Egyptian architect named Hasan Fathy developed an indigenous style of architecture that blends the modern spirit with traditional craftsmanship. A wonderful example of this postmodern vernacular architecture is found at the New Gourna Village near Luxor.
