The document, reported to Doxiadis Associates, is in regard to a structure in Pakistan consisting of a constructed roof feature which, according to Fathy, was adequate and ideal for similar construction in other like regions having a hot and humid climate. The document also includes several photographs and plans from the Pakistani structure. Fathy proposes to adapt roof structure design to the corrugated roof structure design from this building to avoid high costs of material and construction. He asserts that the geometrical form of the construction should enable a stronger structure. Furthermore, Fathy discusses the steps needed to be taken in order to achieve this method of roof construction.
