"Eng. Usama Konbr" <u_konbr [at] yahoo.com> is the author of the message below. It was posted by Fred the Cohousing-L list manager <fholson [at] cohousing.org> because the message included HTML ; PLEASE do not post HTML, see http://csf.colorado.edu/cohousing/2001/msg01672.html Note: This message seems rather off topic but maybe there is a connection to cohousing there somewhere ; at least it is from an architect in Egypt interested in sustainability. Greetings Usama, Fred -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Original Subject: Please, Help me in my Ph.D Search Dear All, It gives me much pleasure to know some good things about your distinguished efforts in Sustainability, which is the best interesting topic for me. Hence, I discovered your great efforts, which act a very important role to my Scientific Research in archite ctural studies, especially on: Sustainable Architecture. And now it is a good chance to recognize each other, My name is: Usama Abd-Alnabi Konbr My job is: Assistant lecturer at the Architectural Department, Faculty of Engineering, Al-Azhar University, in Cairo, Egypt. I had got the B.Sc. in July 1995, from: Al-Azhar University, then I had been occupied in the same faculty, which I took the B.Sc. from as TA (Teaching assistant) at the Department at the beginning of 1997, after that I got M.Sc. in architecture at: November 1, 2000 which titled with: "Towards Touristic Eco- Architecture in Southern Sinai Case study: The Coastal Touristic Architecture Evaluation at Ras Sudr Tourism Sector" Then, at March 2001 I registered a Ph.D. Thesis in Sustainable Architecture, Titled with: "Rooting the main Concepts of Sustainable Architecture in: Egyptian Hot Dry Regions Methodology for Analysis the sustainable dimensions for new Residential sectors Architecture in Great Cairo Region" Now, I send you this E-Mail: to ask you some help related your position, by: sending me any available abstracts, brochures, papers, photocopies, booklets, or catalogues, to help me in my Ph.D. Scientific assignment. And so, I lovely want to make a Fruitfu l relationship with your excellence and expand the sides of cooperation. Now, I am highly waiting you in my E-Mail: U_Konbr [at] hotmail.com Or on the following address, Please: Egypt, Cairo, Nasr City Al-Azhar University, Faculty of Engineering. The Architecture Department, Po.Box 11371 Arch. Usama Abd-Alnabi konbr With very much greetings from Egypt. Tel.: +2 (02) 260174 (Architectural Department) Fax: +2 (02) 2601704 (Architectural Department) +2 (040) 3393233 (Home) Mobile Phone: +2 (010) 5858413 ICQ No.: 148381622 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Now; here you are a quick summary for my Master: Abstract Touristic Experts praise that tourism is the Engine of Development. And Touristic development is main support for the Comprehensive Development. By the Superior Country domination perception for that, It concerned with it, whence Southern Sinai has distin guished capability, efforts was done to remove the Touristic Investment's disincentives, It stimulates the Local & International Finance Houses to Investment on it at the Tourism context ? This is the first aspect. On the other hand: United Nations Environmental Program & International Tourism Organization had signed common declaration at 1982 to associate or mingle as brothers between Tourism & Environment. So It can't be imagined successful tourism without Inserting the Eco dimension as a basic importance, Hence building & Architecture generally act apart of the bigger Touristic system, Then the previous view is right. I.e. it must be compatible with Enviro nment. In terms of southern Sinai Coasts are still virgin, then the Necessity of Compatibility becomes bigger aiming at Sustainability, and to give the next generations a chance to enjoy it. The Researcher's interesting with Coastal Touristic Architecture was based upon: 1. Reasonable grounds to dye Architecture by Eco features, By the Previous common declaration. 2. Highly and Quick Tourism Urban map Growth in southern Sinai, besides the greet Capability to improve the Eco dimension for it, in Comparison with the current status. 3. Moral constitution dimension, whereas carrying the Moral Liability in front of the Next Generations reason this Virginal Location. 4. Religious dimension which urges us to obey the Environment and not to destroy it. So Researcher chose this point to catch up with the target of it, and to guiding the decisions that form the Architecture and the Urban of this promising part from lovely Egyptian land. Researcher depended on Theoretical method in the First part, and Case Study method in the other part, where the Research contain the induction to the principle concepts for Environment, Environmental Design and Tourism to deduce the Fundamental Requiremen ts for each; And for collecting them in one system. Consequently setting the Research Hypothesis, and then completing Induction method to build some general roles and theories by Gathering the Partial Information for every part of the Research sides; then joining them to achieve Eco-Touristic Paradigm, or setting an Imagination for its aspects, besides some Eco-Guidelines. In the applied studies (Case study) which we search Eco-architecture phenomenon in specific geographical place (Southern Sinai); This Method permit studding all Factors and variables that affect it; and at the same time allow studying the Social Phenomeno n and its relation with study area, hence ability to generalize the Result and Recommendations. The research has performed in two parts, the First is Theoretical, and the other is case study, as follow: The first part: Theoretical Studies for Environmental Design of Coastal Touristic Architectural in Southern Sinai: This was divided into three chapters: The First Chapter: was divided into three Sections, Principle concepts closes to the Research were inducted, where the Researcher try to achieve some of its targets, as follow: · The First Section: Environmental Concepts. · The Second Section: Environmental Design Concepts. · The Third Section: Touristic Concepts & Touristic development, with the focusing on Touristic development in Southern Sinai. Throw these principle concepts of Environmental Design & Tourism Experts, and connecting this with Southern Sinai and its constrains, then setting: The Main Research Hypothesis That searched at remaining theoretical part in two chapters: The Second Chapter: Throw which how to set the green and Eco- dimensions for Research Point was searched, in two Sections as follow: · The First Section: Eco- guidelines for the Coastal Touristic Grouping Urban, by focusing on social perspective of Eco-Touristic Urban, Eco-Urban Planning and Eco- Dimensions for Landscape. · The Second Section: Eco- guidelines for the Coastal Touristic Grouping Architecture, By Location Studies, View, Architectural Shapes, Openings Studies, Structure systems and Materials, systems, Interior Design and Colors, and Garages. The Third Chapter: Throw which the aspects of Climatic Design for the Coastal Touristic Architecture in Southern Sinai were searched: Considering that it give in detail along four sections a great deal of features that were mentioned the previous two chapters, and because of its achievements for a lot of Environmental Design goals, So it was divided into four sections: · The First Section: Studying the Climatic Data for Southern Sinai. · The Second Section: Studying the Control of Building Protection from the sunrays. · The Third Section: Studying the Control of Heat Transfer from Exteriors to Interiors. · The Fourth Section: Studying the Natural Ventilation, its constrains and its various techniques. Consequently, Design adaptation Capability to Environmental constrains was viewed, then just case study still, to indicate the existing system in terms of Environmental Compatibility or not, this practical study was done in one chapter containing one sect ion: The Second part (Case study): The Coastal Touristic Architecture Appraisal at Ras Sudr Touristic Sector: The Fourth Chapter: Analytical study for Coastal Touristic Architectural Samples at Ras Sudr Touristic Sector: · The First Section: Analysis for Coastal Touristic Architectural Samples at Ras Sudr Touristic Sector: In this Section the Existing Grouping was appraised; to support the Theoretical part and indicate the Situation of Research Hypothesis if it was right or not. And linking the Academic Cogitation with tactile reality, after that taking a result from the An alytical studies pillars the Result extracted from Theoretical Studies to: Answer the main Research Hypothesis As a basic aim, and to reach finally to the Research Results & Recommendations. *.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.
