The historic city of Cairo is an exceptional testimony to the evolution of Islamic civilization and to mankind’s urban experience. Its uniqueness lies not only in its monuments and historical di- stricts’ architectural wealth, but also in the human and social heritage, which reveals itself in a vernacular living dimension.
Stifled between the uncontrolled development dynamics of Africa’s biggest metropolis and the short-sighted conservation policies of the authorities, today the historical core is in very serious decline. Beside the monuments,, there are extensive areas, frozen in a state close to abandonment. This widespread degradation jeopardizes the urban fabric’s unity, and the traditional living practices strongly related to it.
The Arab Al Yassar neighborhood was chosen as a case study for a rehabilitation program reconciling both tangible and intangible heritage conservation requirements with the vital needs of an urban settlement.
