Kanisa al-Mar'ashali
Cairo, Egypt
An intelligent design in a rationalized vernacular mode, this church occupies an important intersection in the fashionable Zamalek district of Cairo. Its architect, Ramses Wissa Wassef, is a contemporary of Hassan Fathy, and, like him, he sought architectural inspiration in the vernacular traditions of Egypt. He went on to implement his architectural and socio-religious vision in the arts and crafts center he founded and built in the village of Harraniyya outside Cairo.
