اولا : فكرة المسابقة و برنامج المشروع:-
A Worldwide Challenge
The purpose of this brief introduction is to outline a vision of the "The Grand Museum of Egypt", a place where people from different nations and cultures will be able to immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage of more than 5000 years of ancient Egyptian civilisation. The idea has grown across the centuries, during which Egypt has remained a center of civilization, art and culture. Throughout history, during the Pharaonic, Graeco-Roman, Coptic and Islamic periods, even during times of invasion, art has operated as a common denominator. The constant expression of life through art has remained an inherent trait of Egypt and its inhabitants - the largest museum of Egyptian antiquities in the world is conceived as a manifestation of this trait.
The New Museum Project
This project aims at establishing a state-of-the-art complex of museums and facilities, providing access to a broad range of information. New technology is to be employed to ensure the effective and efficient dissemination and delivery of information. The complex will furnish all its visitors with an enjoyable, entertaining, educational and cultural experience. It is anticipated that the complex will initially attract at least three million visitors per year, and that this figure will grow substantially in the future. It will provide a unique cultural complex, offering visitors access to all periods of Pharaonic civilization in a manner that maximizes every visitor's knowledge.
TheDesign ofthe NewMuseum
The design of the museum will be undertaken by architects of international stature and will be driven by the nature of each monument and artifact. Visitors are to be offered an opportunity to relate to the displays, and to assimilate aspects of the culture that produced the objects displayed, interactively and in a manner conducive to visitor participation.
The technological infrastructure of the complex, utilizing the latest computer and communication technology, will allow for the creation of modern archives and a library capable of facilitating the management, maintenance, and preservation of the collection, as well as research-related activities. The communication environment will provide the potential for linkages with other museums at both the national and international level, thus expanding the number of potential visitors to the complex.
The museum, in short, is intended to be the first in history conceived as an integral component of the information highway. It will be the first global virtual museum.
The Gross Cost of the museum is 350 million US dollars. Capital costs of the project will be met by local funding, grants, international development agencies, and by sponsorship from international corporations in return for appropriate recognition and credit. Individual endorsement funds and international financing agencies will also be explored and mobilized.
THE SITE OF PROJECT
Cairo-Alexandria Desert Road , Km .4.5 , Giza , EgyptThe Egyptian Ministry of Culture
Egypt offers its unique site neighboring the Pyramids of Giza as a genius loci for such cultural /architectural challenge that best addresses the world’s Third Millenium and Egypt’s Seventh Millenium. A strong visual linkage between the new museum site and the pyramids themselves suggests architectural choices that will not waste the possibility of establishing a kind of formal dialogue.
The project is to be constructed near the Giza Pyramids plateau, belonging to a bigger archaeological area and, precisely, to the “UNESCO World Heritage Site - Memphis and its necropolis with the Pyramids field”, which extends in a north-south direction for about 30 km. from Abu Rawash to Dahshur, including Abu Ghorab, Abu Sir and Saqqara archaeological area.
The new museum could establish a synergetic relationship not only with the three pyramids and the Sphinx of the Giza plateau, but also with these other important monuments, at the moment not easily (or at all) accessible.
The surroundings are represented by: on the desert side, lands between Cairo-Alexandria Desert Road and the road to Fayoum, where the new museum site is located (new town of Hadaek El Ahram, Shooting Club and Housing, etc.) and the archaeological area itself.
The area destined to be the new Egyptian museum measures about 117 Feddans (50 Hectares = 480000sq.m.) and belongs to the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA).
