Elements, Creativity, Design


The Egyptian heritage a home for great civilizations that identified it with special heritage elements giving rise to several aesthetic and visual values.  These days, such identity has been fading out due to the western conception that overwhelmed the Egyptian one.
Because of the importance of the studio in influencing and developing concepts and ideas, together with the development of the students' acquired skills so a full presentation and elucidation of heritage elements, as well as modern trends and effects on individuals, are explained. Additionally, these elements are utilized to attain a design model that has an impact on the student's creative thinking development.
This research aims to monitor modern visions and trends in the internal design anticipated through measuring the extent by attaching the students' attention and affect their design trend towards coming up with such designs that bear sings of heritage and creativity elements.
