Fathy, Hassan. "Rural Housing in Developing Countries," Hassan Fathy Archives, Aga Khan Trust for Culture, Geneva, Switzerland.
This paper outlines the various problems related to rural housing development in developing countries. It also suggests a number of solutions to these problems. Fathy proposes a pilot program for building rural housing that would plan for a balanced distribution of the existing population, a mixture of the occupational groups needed to provide common services within a village, and a possibility to train villagers in the crafts and occupations that currently are not present within rural communities.
