Simone Swan: Adobe Building is the first book to discuss and illustrate Swan’s architecture while also chronicling one of her annual workshops in author Dollens’ first-hand account. Swan studied with the great Egyptian architect Hassan Fathy in his Cairo studio and after his death in 1989 adopted his mission of helping house the world’s poor through the creation of environmental projects that re-examine and promote traditional adobe building while introducing compatible forms, such as the Nubian vault and dome through her organization, The Adobe Alliance.
