ALI LABIB GABR
Ali Labib Gabr

Ali Labib Gabr was Dean of the School of Architecture of Cairo University.

SOME OF HIS WORKS

Two peculiarities make the Indian Embassy residence on Zamalek's Mohammed Mazhar Street special. Firstly because it was designed in the art-deco style by leading Egyptian architect Ali Labib Gabr. Secondly, because in a city of 16 million this villa is one of 14 such properties with direct access to the Nile and therefore an endangered specie. Originally the villa belonged to Dr. Mohammed Reda who later sold it in 1949 to the newly independent government of India. The first Indian ambassador to live there was Assaf Ali Asghar Fayzy at whcih time the villa was both residence and chancery.

ANTOINE SELIM NAHAS

href

Antoine Selim Nahas By far the most prolific architect of his generation, Antoine Selim Nahas was born in Cairo on 27 August 1901. His father, Selim Nahas, owned a textile factory which he later passed on to Antoine's younger brother Robert before the latter sold it to Robert Hosni who proceeded to expand it.

Nahas was educated at Cairo's College des Freres (much later in his career he would build the extant College in Daher). Later, as a member of the Mission Scolaires Egyptienne en France he, joined l'Ecole Centrale des Art et Manufactures in Paris graduating in July 1925. Subsequently he enrolled in l'Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts where he taught after graduating in June 1930.

Nahas's first ever project was the design of Beirut's national museum circa 1930. It was in Lebanon that he met Gladys Shoucair whom he married before moving to Cairo in 1934 where their son Selim was born.

In Cairo, Nahas established his practice at No. 13 Cherif Street (10th floor) and later at No. 19 Kasr al-Nil Street (4th floor). Aside from his private practice, Nahas was Chief Architect for the Ministry of Education. He also obtained a professorship at Fouad (now Cairo) University's faculty of (Fonoun al-Gamila--Beaux Arts. During his tenure he obtained the privilege for FG graduates to receive a diploma from the Beaux Arts in Paris after spending one year there. It was during his teaching career that he traveled to Lebanon for the execution of several prestigious public and private projects

al-Chams Bldg situated on Simon Bolivar Square

Nahas lived successively at (I) Villa Sobhani on Dokhoulieh Street (where Sheraton Giza stands today), (ii) in a roof-flat at No. 3(?) Rue Maspero, and (iii) in a self-designed Dokki villa he inherited from his brother Michael.

Following the 1961 nationalization and sequestration laws, Nahas, at the instigation of textile magnate Francois Tager and a cousin, Raymond Homsy, relocated in Rome where he started an urban development project The Italian venture ultimately failed for lack of sufficient funds. Two years later, Nahas relocated his practice in Beirut's Union Bldg in the Art et Metier district. He was subsequently appointed dean of Lebanon's Institut National des Beaux Arts

Nahas's last architectural achievement was the design of an extension for Beirut's National Museum, the same museum where he started his prolific career three decades earlier.

Nahas died in Beirut on 15 November 1966.

In Cairo he designed several commercial and residential Bldgs including the main Jewish Synagogue in downtown Cairo and the Austro-Hungarian Rudolf Hospital in the now popular district of Shubra. The first is already listed and the second has been disfigured over the years. Matasek is said to have taken part in the design of the Credit Foncier's Cairo headquarters (today Arab International Bank). Its principal designer however was Max Herz Bey the dean of the Austrian architects in Cairo. Herz was responsible for several government-commissioned Bldgs before WW-1 among them the Islamic Museum.

    NAOUM CHEBIB

    Naoum Shebib Born in Cairo on 28 November 1915, Naoum Shebib was one of the leading Egyptian architects of his time. He graduated in 1937 with honors from Cairo University. He also obtained from the same university a post graduate diploma in Soil Mechanics & Engineering (1954) and another in Structural Engineering (1956). Between 1941 and 1970, Shebib conducted his practice as an architect, structural engineer and contractor. His integrity and expertise were highly valued in both his profession and among the community. He employed fourteen people whereas the number of workers on construction sites reached several thousands. In 1971, Naoum Shebib relocated in Canada with his family, where he lived until his death in 1985.

    Cairo TowerHis most remarkable realizations have been the following:

  • Cairo Tower (b. 1961)
  • Al-Ahram Bldg (b. 1960s)
  • Sabet-Sabet Bldg (b. 1958) in Garden City
  • Radio Tower (b. 1954), Rouchdi Street, 22 floors.
  • Immeuble Charles Kuentz (1955), No. 5 Boulos Hanna Street, Dokki

    Cairo Tower

    The Cairo tower on Gezira Island, was the highest concrete structure in the world when it was completed, standing 187 meters tall. Shebib was the project's architect in chief, structural engineer and its global contractor. In 1961 the tower's official inauguration took place. The design of the tower is of Pharaonic influence appearing in the shape of a tall lotus flower made up of 8 million small mosaic lozenges. As the lozenges ascend towards the top of the tower, they are stretched on a vertical axis creating an impression of an upward movement enhancing the figure of the lotus flower. With a diameter of fourteen meters, the tower rests on a steel-reinforced concrete slab, the dimension of which is quite impressive. At the time of its construction, more  than five hundred workers were required. al-Ahram Bldg on Gala'a Street

    The Cairo Tower is also characterized by purity of lines and by the truthfulness of primal material. The absence of any superfluous decorations and the utilization of the naked concrete bring the viewer's eyes and attention to yet another symbol of eternal Egypt. At the top of the tower, one finds a revolving restaurant, a cafeteria and a belvedere from which numerous tourists can admire the Cairo panorama.

    al-Ahram Bldg (b. 1960s)

    Al-Ahram Bldg is home to the leading Arab newspaper. Here also Shebib was the project's architect in chief, structural and site engineer. The surface of this Bldg is 30,000 square meters which includes space occupied by the editorial, printing and administration services, as well as the public areas.

    Sabet-Sabet Bldg -- 31 floors a.k.a. Belmont Bldg (b. 1958) on Corniche-al-Nil, Garden City.

    Concrete dome roofs for several Bldgs, such as cinemas or factories

    In 1946, Shebib built the concrete dome roof of the 800 sq.m. Ali Baba Cinema, in the Boulak district using a technology that he subsequently patented. It consisted of a unique method whereby the concrete roof of a Bldg is poured onto a mould on the ground and, once the concrete has set, is slowly raised into position to a height of 12 meters with the use of jacks. A similar dome roof, supported by only eight pillars, was used in the construction of De Sotos' Sales & Service Bldg for account of the Cairo Motor Company.

    OTHER PROJECTS

    Pre-Meridien Hotel view of new Sabet-Sabet Bldg. Shebib realized in various districts of Cairo several construction projects including apartment Bldgs, schools, churches, factories, commercial Bldgs, cinemas, individual residences and villas. His projects made good use of structural elements of various types, such as mushroom structural supports, and thin concrete shell vaults. The latter became his expertise as of 1946. Although various types of foundations were used, he developed a special type of concrete ground slab foundations that made good use of thin vaults in the shape of hyperbolic paraboloids.
    Shebib also developed a pyramidal type of foundation. Besides the scientific aspect of his work, one should note his management qualities that enabled him to successfully supervise projects worth up to US $5,000,000 value of 1960's).

Dominioni spent a good part of his professional life in Egypt. Towards the end of his Egypt career he set up office on Soliman Pasha Street's Cinema Metro Bldg together with Victor Salama and Gaston Rossi.
    Dominioni was a nephew of a Cardinal-Secretary to Pope Pius XI. He received a papal title of count. He was also a reserve colonel in the Italian army during the Ethiopia campaign and later in WW2. He married late in his life. On 20 October 2002 at El Alamein, Dominioni's widow received the highest Italian decoration from Italy's president Campi.
