Biggest Archaeological Museum: The Grand Egyptian Museum, Giza, Egypt

3 of 22

Like
many new extreme forms of architecture, Giza’s planned Grand Egyptian Museum
was the outcome of a competition. The $550 million museum is slated to open in
2013 despite Egypt’s political turmoil. It’s a 210-acre project just a mile
from the Giza Pyramids that will include a main structure made with translucent
alabaster and a large atrium for ancient Egyptian artifacts and statues like the
3,200-year-old Ramesses II, relocated from Cairo’s Ramses Square. gem.gov.eg —Adam H. Graham
