Paris Along the Nile: Architecture in Cairo from the Belle Epoque
American University in Cairo Press, 1999 - 112 من الصفحات
So impressed was Khedive Ismail after a visit to Haussman's "new" Paris in 1867 that he decided to build a modern city along the same architectural lines and aesthetics, and brought European architects to Cairo to initiate Egypt's most dynamic building period since medieval times.
The stunning buildings of late 19th- and early 20th-century Cairo remain, but they are in a state of neglect, threatened by pollution, and are being pulled down for concrete highrises and parking lots. Paris along the Nile captures in 200 black-and-white photographs the architectural jewels of "modern" Cairo.
