CONTEST: Museum of the Ancient Nile (MoAN) Egypt

The object of this competition for architecture students and young architects, Museum of the Ancient Nile (MoAN) Egypt, is to create a museum that immerses the visitor in the Ancient Nile

This week we brought you a very interesting and prestigious contest sponsored by the Arquideas, the architectural community responsible of other competitions such as Canyon View Accomodation (CaVA Arizona). This new contest consists in the conception of the Museum of the Ancient Nile (MoAN) in Egypt. The MoAN will provide an exhibition space of reference in the surroundings of the river Nile, integrating in the landscape and offering to the visitor a unique experience.

The Nile, with its 6,800 km, is the longest river in Africa and for centuries was considered the longest in the world. Located northeast of the continent, it crosses 11 countries. Without the Nile, the empire of ancient Egypt would not have come into being. The Egyptians recognized the Nile as the creator of the fertile lands in which they lived and were so aware of its importance that they even had a god, called Hapy who represented the Nile River.

Thanks to its privileged location, the proposed space aims to become a mandatory stop for the visitor on the river, as a preamble to the history, mythology and monuments that surrounds it. A tourist focus on a global level, capable of transmitting what the ancient Nile supposed for the history of humanity.
