I'm writing a paper on Ancient Egypt and it's effect on modern architecture. I need some ideas. The pyramids have inspired a Las Vegas casino The Luxor, A sports complex at Memphis Tennessee, and The Lourve's glass entranceway. Obelisks design inspired the design of the washington monument and can be found courtyards and gardens of today. Egyptian motif can be found pretty much everywhere.
Any ideas or input
please help! Idea

The Trafford Centre in Manchester, also has a ancient Egyptian designed section that looks like temple walls. It's in the food court. Very Happy

Now I really need to see this place. Shocked
I wouldn't mind having a Coke machine with tomb scenes
but my house is already overflowing with Egyptian furniture, kic-nacks and misc. stuff. Twisted Evil
Maybe I can find an Egyptian refigerator somewhere or paint one myself!
The Trafford Center is another place I have to add to my places of sites to see. I'm afraid that list is getting rather long.
My paper made an A+ due to its ususal nature.
I appreciate the knowledge ya'll shared with me.
I just now have the urge to paint more things. Laughing

Hey, that would actually probably look really good!
The scene that was used on the coke machines was this one from the tomb of Nefertari:

And the replica temple walls looked like they were based on those at Abu Simbel:

The old Black Cat cigaret factory - now apparently Grater London House near Mornington Crescent tube station is impressive with its brightly painted facade and pair of 2.5 meter Bastet statues.

There are many legends about the destruction of the great library in Alexandria 2000 years ago, but much less historical fact about the building itself has survived. Three libraries may have coexisted in the ancient city, but scant data remains about their location, layout, holdings, organization, administration, or physical structure.,.....
