Centre of global attraction: The GEM is the place of maximum concentration of Egyptian art in the paradigmatic context of the Pyramids.
The image of the museum will be the formalization of its relationship with:
1) The sun: Photovoltaic plant as cover for the car park.
2) With the sand and the wind: Aeolic energy plant over a sand dune.
3) With the water from the Nile: Proposal for a re-circulated water surface that creates a microclimate and mirrors the Pyramids.
4) With the orientation of blind walls to the south and big gaps towards north it will become a great energy saving mechanism.
The exhibition structure will be in itself a hyper-textual matrix and its complexity will allow many routes of enormous richness and importance to the visitors. The physical structure of the permanent exhibition scheme will condition the shape of the entire museum.
The basic component of the permanent display can be read trough a thematic network and a chronological route. The most frequent path is the one produced by the most singular pieces of the museum and can be separated by anterior. Finally a comfortable “computer and communications technology” is foreseen.
