Fathy, Hassan. A Memorandum Regarding The Formation Of Internal National Programs For The Study Of The Fine Arts. 1 Feb. 1950. Hassan Fathy Archives. Aga Khan Trust for Culture. Geneva, Switzerland.
Fathy suggests the allotment of a national endowment similar to western models where artists are awarded a travel grant to Rome and Greece to study classical ornament and produce artistic works inspired by ancient architecture. He suggests that a similar model should be organized in Egypt in places such as Luxor, in order to inspire and make aware the elements of classical design in architecture.
