Abstract

In the New Bariz project, Hassan Fathy engaged a clear attempt to codify, from the methodological point of view, the design process of a new urban settlement in the desert. The urban form, in this design process, is conceived as an application of the "lessons" derived from the analytical study of an oasis’s vernacular settlement. His aim was to draw up a methodological protocol able to orient the design of a new city in the desert, where he implements a sort of convergence between the meanings of the two words: climate and tradition, both essential elements of the methodology. The dissertation is leaded from the idea that sees this methodology constitutes the main Fathy’s heritage, applicable to the contemporary.
