An Egyptian architect and faculty member in the Department of Architecture, Faculty of Engineering, Menoufia University. I have a special concern with the inter-relationship between the sociocultural aspects and the built environment. My Msc. was about the impact of societal transformations on the formation of the built environments of the rural villages in the Delta of Egypt. My Ph.D. was about the impact of ruling regimes on the formation of the built environment in Egypt. I have participated in some urban design projects and proposals, the last was the redesign of the corniche of Shebin Elkom city in Menoufia governorate.
