Hammams in North Africa
Dear All,

I am researching the topic of "hammams in North Africa which were built between the 11th century and the 19th century." The hammams to be studied are located in:
Fez, Morocco
Algiers, Algeria
Tunis, Tunisia
Tripoli, Libya
Cairo, Egypt

I am mainly intrested in any references; i.e: architectural and urban drawings, technical reports, sociological data, archives (Pascal Coste, Edmond Pauty, waqf documents, etc.).

I would be very grateful if you could help with this matter. Any advice on work previously done, existing documents, restoration work, etc., would be helpful.

Many thanks,
Fodil Fadli

Hammams in North Africa
Hi Fodil,

There is a huge research project about hammams, the historical ones worked in Cairo, Egypt and Fes, Morocco. It will show in Damascus, Syria from 10 February to 22nd, then to Algeria and maybe Palestine. I worked on this project and I can give you some contacts of the research team. Are you interested in a specific aspect, or in general?

Nour,

For my Masters of Architecture in Dundee I am designing a hammam in Cairo (El-Refai beside the Sultan Hassan Mosque). I would be really grateful if you could forward me the details also.
Many thanks.
