MoAN Jazirat Ad Dabhah - Museum of Ancient Egypt

The Museum of Ancient Egypt is located on a geological and sociological landscape, between the East and West banks of the Nile on an agricultural peninsula; Jazirat Ad Dabhah, Island Sabha in the North of Aswan.

Each year, this Island is flooded from July to September and makes the land rich for a good harvest. Nile’s water level rises to approximately 8 to 10 meters in the Region of Aswan. This natural phenomenon provides interesting challenges for the site.

The MoAN is constructed on 102 columns. These columns raise the building by 2- 4 meters above ground to provide protection from the annual flood. The museum from afar looks like it is floating, as if there is a sailing ship cruising through the land.

The MoAN is composed of six permanent exhibition spaces, three big rooms of 6,140m2 and three temporary exhibition spaces of 3,600m2, a total of 15,000m2.

The design of the building is inspired by the Nubian Village. The houses in the Nubian Village are placed side by side to create shadow. MoAN consists of 4 large exhibition spaces and 4 smaller spaces which gather together to create an atrium.

The Atrium can also be used as a refuge incase of natural disasters, or the Atrium can be used as an event space when the villages get together.
It can also provide resting space for the tourist that are cruising on the Nile.
