Mohamed Aly and Amlaak Propose the Adrian Colossus of the Mediterranean, a Space of Knowledge to Unite Europe With Africa
The architectural challenge, an opportunity for change
The great Euro-African house of the Mediterranean has a complete remodeling of the turbine building of the old thermal power station, closed since 2011, which would house the cultural contents. The fourth pyramid of the Mediterranean, totally glazed, would be the fifth integrating element of the whole, formed by the building of turbines and the three chimneys, which would not only fit volumes but also ideas. Looking at it takes us back to the time when Keops built the pyramid that would be the tallest stone building in the world until the 19th century, but it also reminds us that we live in the 21st century. It is the symbol of the union of Africa and Europe for knowledge.
