RealPlayer is required to hear these clips. You can download it here This blockbuster exhibition is the first major museum presentation of the art of The Old Kingdom (2650 to 2150 B.C.; spanning Dynasties Three to Six). During this 500-year formative period of ancient Egyptian culture, artists created the distinctive style that defined Egyptian art for centuries to come. The first true pyramids (among them, the Great Pyramid at Giza) were all built during this seminal period. Commonly referred to as the "Age of the Pyramids" and considered by the Egyptians themselves to be their Golden Age, this unprecedented period of artistic flowering has never been surpassed. Created for the temples and tombs surrounding the pyramids, the objects in the exhibition were borrowed from more than 30 museums in 10 countries. "This superb exhibition is a unique opportunity for Toronto and Ontario audiences to view, in one setting, the world's most magnificent works of art from ancient Egypt," said

The Pyramids of Egypt, built at Giza during the 4th Dynasty (circa 2680-c.2544 BC) are the oldest of the seven wonders and the only ones remaining intact today.
Thegreat pyramids of Egypt still stand. They were built between 2650 and 2500 BC. Exceptfor parts of the Mausoleum and of the temple of Artemis, they are the only one ofthe seven ancient wonders still standing.
Of the seven wonders of the ancientworld, only the pyramids of Egypt have survived in a form that resembles their originalcondition. The largest of the three, known as the Great Pyramid of Khufu, was madeof approximately 2.3 million blocks of stone each weighing an average of 2.5 tons.Located in Giza on the west bank of the Nile River, near Cairo, the pyramids remainone of the engineering marvels of all time.

    Maya Architecture and Road Systems

    The Maya built many different buildings. such as huge pyramids, temples and palaces. The temples were painted red and blue or covered with white stucco and then polished to make the temple shine. Occasionally a newer temple would be built on top of an old one to make another layer. Sometimes the temples would grow up to 70 meters high. Here is an animated sequence on How to Build a Pyramid Nobles and priests were actually the only people who lived in the cities. They mostly spent their time in small dark rooms in their palaces. The Maya did not have metal, they only had tools made from stone, wood, bone or shell and they didn't even have the wheel yet. So the Maya had trouble building their temples, palaces and pyramids. The Maya had sweat houses to cure diseases and also had ball courts. They had normal houses as well for the ordinary people. The use of plaster and burnt lime was very important to the Mayan architecture. The rooms are usually thin and rectangular shaped with hardly any windows. The decorations in rooms mostly have masks, human figures and geometric forms. The cap of the room which is constructed of concrete is gently rounded or sloped to drain off the heavy tropical rains. The difference between Mayan pyramids and Egyptian pyramids is that the Mayan ones had flat tops, they're formed in steps and supported buildings on the top. The buildings were usually temples.

Click to enlarge Dublin-based heneghan.peng.architects have won the international architectural competition to design the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza. The open architectural competition attracted 1557 designs from 83 countries, most likely the largest global architectural competition in history. heneghan.peng.architects started working in New York and were selected for the Architectural League's Young Architects' forum in 1999. After winning an international competition for a government office building in Ireland, the practise relocated to Dublin in 2001. The New Museum, which is to be located at the first desert plateau outside Cairo, between the great Pyramids of Giza and Cairo, is described as the largest museum of Egyptian artefacts in the world and one of the largest museums in the world. The Museum is envisaged as a cultural complex of activities devoted to Egyptology and will include a conference facility, library and multimedia facilities. Intended to be the first museum in history conceived as an integral component of the information Highway, the first global virtual museum, it is envisaged that a system of display will be developed allowing for the display of artefacts physically in the museum as well as virtually hosting Egyptian artefacts from collections all over the world.

Excavations at Giza
Location: This site is an extremely well researched and detailed account of the archeological finds at Giza. It includes over twenty pictures and maps of the site. It has a fascinating and detailed representation of each item. A student could write and entire paper just from the material present on this site. Joe Creamer
This site has some decent photographs. The photographs may appear small at first, but if one clicks on them, the site links you to much larger pictures. Information provided by this site is somewhat lacking. It is recommended to go elsewhere if looking for history or architectural information, but if one is looking for images, this is a nice place to go. Sery Bounphasaysonh
Location: I would only recommend this document if anyone is looking for a specific example of a pyramid. It tells very little about the Egyptian culture in general, but it does make reference to the fact that we do not know how the Egyptians constructed the pyramids. It also describes the pyramid in detail. Once in this document, one is also able to observe other items from Egyptian culture such as a tomb or a piece of art. Julie Burke

Discussion Pyramide du Louvre Commentary "Of all the Grands Projets in Paris, none created such a stir as the Pei Pyramids in the courtyard of the famous Louvre Museum . Spectacular in concept and form, they provide a startling reminder of the audacious ability of modern architects to invigorate and re-circulate traditional architectural forms...The main Pyramid is basically a complex inter-linked steel structure sheathed in reflective glass. In fact it is an entrance doorway providing a long-overdue entrance portico to the main galleries of the Louvre. As one descends into the interior entrance foyer, the dramatic nature of the intervention becomes apparent. The main Pyramid, which certainly disturbs the balance of the old Louvre courtyard, is countered by two smaller pyramids, which provide further light and ventilation to the subterranean spaces." Details Address: Cour Napoleon, 75001 Paris, France.

After these came the step-pyramid at Sakkara , built c.2620 B.C. , which soon evolved into the straight-sided true pyramid. This monumental structure was developed around the IV dynasty and continued to be the favored form for royal burial through the VI dynasty. Each monarch built his own pyramid in which his mummified body might be preserved for eternity away from human view and sacrilege. As a result of the lack of sophisticated machinery, the construction of each pyramid took many years and required measureless amounts of building materials and labor. Entrance into a pyramid is through an opening in the northern wall. A small passage, traversing lesser chambers, leads to the sepulchral room deep beneath the surface. Stone blocks forming a gable divert the weight of the great masonry masses over these chambers. Though the pyramids were usually built of rough stone blocks laid up in horizontal courses, many were constructed of mud bricks with a stone casing. The three pyramids of Giza near Cairo, all of the IV dynasty, are the largest and finest of their kind. The Great Pyramid of

Old Kingdom Beginnings of Egyptian Architecture: Mortuary Architecture
I. The Land. Egyptian architecture shaped by Egypt's peculiar topography: Upper and Lower Egypt. Important places to be mentioned: Memphis, Thebes, Saqqara. The river Nile: Delta, cataracts. Ancient name for Egypt: Kemet/The Black; the desert is Deshret/The Red). II. Periods of Egyptian History. Predynastic period; Old Kingdom [Dynasties I-VI, 3100-2280 BCE]; Middle Kingdom [Dynasties XI-XII, 2131-1875 BCE]; New Kingdom [Dynasties XVIII-XX, 1580-1085 BCE]. Upper and Lower Egypt unified ca. 3100-3000 BCE by a pharaoh (king) called Menes or Narmer. This is beginning of dynastic Egypt. III. The Tomb and Egyptian Ideas of Death. Death as a continuation of life: eternal work in the Field of Reeds (Elysian Fields). The tomb as a house for the spirit. The Ka and the Ba. Predynastic burials in the sand. (1) The mastaba tomb: a flat-roofed rectangular structure containing or built over burial space. Note: offering room, burial chamber, serdab, ka statue. Cumulative character of Egyptian culture: ideas and architectural forms added to older ones, rather than replacing them.

Lesson Plan:
Forms in Architecture Grade Level
2nd to 4th grade
(this is also a great lesson for pairing older students with younger students for the model construction) Introduction Summary
Students will explore shapes and forms in architecture. This lesson will also introduce students to the concepts of form and function in architecture. Students will take an architectural tour (on foot or with visuals) to identify forms and shapes. Older students can construct forms from tagboard. Students will construct building models from found and made forms. Online Activities
If you have a computer with Internet access in your classroom, you can introduce your students to architecture and forms online. Sanford's A Lifetime of Color web site ( offers online games and activities about architecture and forms. You can also find helpful Technique Demos, ArtEdventures and Lessons which will reinforce the concepts and techniques taught in this lesson. Background
Students should be able to identify the basic shapes. They should have sound cutting, gluing and taping skills. They should also understand that "architecture" means structures made by people for different purposes.

This rectangle is supposed to appear in many of the proportions of that famous ancient Greek temple, the Parthenon, in the Acropolis in Athens , Greece but there is no original documentary evidence that this was how the building was designed.
