THE GRAND EGYPTIAN MUSEUM INTERNATIONAL IDEAS COMPETITION

AWARDED DISTINCTION

Location: Giza, Egypt
Year: 2002
Status: Completed
Area: 50.000 sq.m.
Team A. M. Kotsiopoulos, K. Demiri and M. Dougias  

The need to rejoin all the artifacts of the ancient Egyptian civilization led the team to the concept of relating the museum complex to the ground, to organize it around a piazza which resembles to an excavated “crater”, and to orientate it towards the Great Pyramids of Giza. A buffer zone is situated at the lower level of the site connected with the main “piazza” through a long entrance trench on the walls of which the visitors have the opportunity to digitally visualize important exhibits of the museum. The exhibition halls are organized thematically and chronologically in a radial and circular mode, offering to the visitor a large variety of alternative routes. For providing natural light and ventilation to the exhibition spaces, several different innovative solutions of lighting and ventilation have been proposed.
The proposal was awarded distinction and was published along with the other distinctive projects of the competition.
