The Book of Architecture

A series of stories, whose heroes are buildings and builders that present conclusive moments in Egypt’s architectural history or ” Al Gheitany’s” biography, intermitted by glimpses where Al Ghietany explains architectural expressions in metaphoric descriptions and a Sufi demeanor as he views things and their reflections and search for meanings and their antonyms.
Each story is an establishment of a life, a movement, a ray of light in a deserted human passage way with significant titles.
Al Gheitany swings between the visible and invisible, secrecy and revelation to tell more and more, without closing the building’s door at the end of the text.
