Khoronfesh Nursery
Cairo, Egypt
"A small project, for an unknown location, using a central, drum-like qa'a, with flat-roofed wings flanking it on either side, providing an entirely open rectilinear floor area for the care of children. The qa'a is cut in two by another floor above, which increases available floor area, but uncharacteristically restricts the feeling of vertical space that the architect achieves elsewhere in the use of this traditional form." (construction not verified)
