Urban Planner

Altaey is a true artist, with every sense of the word, starting with his paintings and drawings, his critical writings up to his valuable touches to Baghdad's streets and buildings.

Art is a tool of emotion, and engineering is a tool of rationality, and they both shape architecture's methods of creation
