Stairway to Heaven


Architects such as Ramses Wissa-Wassef and Dr. Hassan Fathy went back to the traditional designs for houses and refined them, creating spaces of extraordinary beauty. These stairs are at the Wissa-Wassef Art Center in Harania, a recipient of the Agha Khan award for architecture.
