Written to: The General Director of the Institute of Construction Research
Date: March 18, 1955
This memorandum was written by Hassan Fathy in response to a correspondence received by him regarding ongoing research on villages. The memorandum is a proposal to include research related to the village of Gourna since Fathy believed that the construction of a new village next to an old one and the migration of the residents to the new village merits a viable comprehensive study that encompasses the fields of construction, health, sociology, and economics.
