"....Man's abstraction in the 20th century stands on the scientific base of space time equation.Human achievement represents itself in the contemporary civilization, through three passes in Art, Science & Technology.At these different fields, we can recognize the vicious circle, where our achievements rotates, as an out-come of the boundary of the scientific base and its chain reactions.By following three passes through Architecture, Engineering & Planing, we hope to give an able hand joining all who struggle for human happiness, by the continuos effort, searching for suitable ecological balances.While we hope to live up with evolution prefery, giving the other hand to the new generation, and there vital effort to surpass the psychological barrier of the given principles, motivated by evolution instinct................"

Abdel Kawi, Amr, Aly Hatem Gabr, Tamer El Khorazaty & Said Sorour, eds. Cover, Table of Contents & Editorial. In Medina Issue Twenty-One: Architecture, Interiors & Fine Arts. British Virgin Islands: Medina Magazine. (April 2002).
Medina Magazine is a unique and ambitious project in the Middle East by a group of architects, designers and artists to collaborate to present both architecture conceived and created in Egypt, and examples from other contexts that contain elements relevant to architectural designers, students and educators working in Egypt.
This magazine that has been published in Arabic and English since 1998 is divided into three sections to aid the reader in critiquing their built environment; to see that each component negotiates with the other to form our visual world. Structure, decorative details and interpretations of spaces and how society reacts to them anchor Medina's founders' conception as apparent in the selection of articles presented on ArchNet.
Medina goes even further than presenting architectural, design and art projects; as part of their design revolution in Egypt, Medina also organizes annual design competitions for students and professionals, as well as supporting symposiums and art projects.
