House of the Flying Architect is a short video commissioned for Modernist Indignation. It was filmed in the 1948 house of architect Sayed Karim, located in the leafy suburb of Maadi, Cairo. The house is a manifesto of Karim’s material-driven approach to architecture, it was also his refuge for nearly a decade starting in 1964 when he was placed under sequestration and banned from travel when he fell out of political favour. The voice over by contemporary Egyptian architect Shahira Fahmy highlights points from Karim’s theoretical text “what is architecture” published in the first issue of Al Emara in 1939.
