Hello Dr. Tomah,

My name is Tim and I am a student in the Masters Program at the University of Colorado in Denver Colorado of the United States. Our Architecture studio is working on a project in conjunction with the Dar-El-Hekma school to design some townhouses and apartment buildings. I looked into getting the article from the Journal of Urban Design that you recommended for the privacy in residential living but have been unable to get that article. Would you be willing to send me a copy of that article as I am trying to design with the traditions of Saudi Arabia in mind. I was also wondering if you have a good resource on the Rochan which was or is a part of your architecture from times past I am told.

Thank you for any assistance that you might have for me with these two subjects.

If you go public, means you go to plazas, streets, supermarkets, etc., etc., privacy is simply not possible, you will be part of the public (and, hopefully respected as an individual human being).
If you are at home (or, e.g. at a hotel), privacy is indispensable (even then you are married, because everybody needs, from time to time, to be alone and not seen). I can not speak for women and the islamic society, but I know that it is true for (most) men.
