This publication is from the literary works of Hassan Fathy. 'The Story Of The Mashrabiyya' is a fictional play in which Hassan Fathy leads the reader to follow the events surrounding a wooden window grille (mashrabiyya) dumped in one of the corners of an antique furniture shop. The grille eventually finds a new home in a building. The play clearly shadows Fathy's architectural career, which clearly emphasized the preservation of traditional methods in modern architecture.
