ArchCairo 09 working papers, Co-authored with Prof. Olfat Kesheik

Nanotechnology is still a fledging science but one that has been forecast an extremely promising future with the potential to change the world around us. A nanometer is one billionth (10-9) of a meter, it offers ways to create smaller, cheaper, lighter and faster devices that can do cleverer things, use fewer raw materials and consume less energy.
The applications of nanotechnology are in all aspects of our life, it can be pertained in medicine, industry, communications, transportation, and more important, architecture. The use of nanotechnology in architecture varies from materials, equipments, to forms and design theories.
When introducing a new technology to a field such as the construction industry, one should always first examine the benefits it can bring. In case of the application of nanotechnology, we are talking about added value, additional functionality, as well as market demand with regard to product development.

▪ Will it affect forms, design, materials.
▪ Can nanoarchitecture be extremely useful in hospitals hotels…etc.?
