Museum Design, Cairo


The museum design for the Grand Egyptian Museum, Cairo has the concept of a seed semi buried in the desert containing information of life and history- like DNA information the five subject areas have interlocking spiralling routes which step down through time. The museum seed is surrounded by a shadey courtyard for external exhibits and access routes.

The buildings and access roads are discreetly embedded in the site for climatic protection and structure/service columns internally reflect daylight to the interior and vent the air.

If you are looking for a unique, metaphorical, conceptual design approach for a public building do make contact!
