"Our submission responded to the scale of ancient Egypt and the sublime. The scheme proposed to link a network of buildings within the sand dunes and cover the assemblage with an environmental skin to mediate the environment.
The skin moves as it responds to external conditions and is informedby the sun, wind, thermal loads, light levels and fresh air.
The Museum is a cluster of buildings under one roof where the circulation cores and internal network of lane and ramps maximise the complexity of circulatory options and programme adjacencies."Elenberg Frazer
