Let’s Hear It For Imhotep

In honor of World Architecture Day, a mighty shout out MUST go to  Imhotep- chancellor to Pharaoh Djoser,a physician and an astrologer. He was also the high priest of the Heliopolis sun god Ra.

Most important of all Imhotep was the  architect of the first Pyramid built in Egypt.

Without Imhotep the world would absolutely look different and our imaginations would not be as well fed and rich:

Happy World Architecture Day everyone- in the Spirit of the Day and the upcoming festivities starting in 27 more days, may I suggest we celebrate this special  one with a lot of enthusiasm and much affection.
