The Giza-based Architects (Mohamed Samy, Tarek Ali, Mohamed Sarhan and Sama Abdelkarim) from Cell Studio has recently designed a proposal for ”Barjeel Museum” a modern Arab art museum in Sharjah, UAE, that connects the past with the future.

來自Cell Studio的吉薩建築師(Mohamed Samy,Tarek Ali,Mohamed Sarhan和Sama Abdelkarim)最近為阿聯酋沙迦的現代阿拉伯藝術博物館“ Barjeel博物館”設計了一個提案,該博物館將過去與未來聯繫在一起 。

The design seeks to show the role of art as a history storyteller from its own perspective and this was appeared by evoking the collective memory and employ them through the modern era with its needs and features based on diversity and coexistence by accepting the others


And this was reflected by designing public plaza inspired by the idea of the ancient Arab courtyard for cultural and artistic events in turn to reverse the current image and open to the sky to be connected with nature the main source of inspiration for art.


Modern art is largely symbolic and expressive, as the Arab region has undergone complex political events that have influenced art the external effects on identity appeared so that it develops with the events although the identity remains influential and strong and remaining.


The spatial experience expresses this by transitions from the external arena and move within the galleries connected visually or implicitly the inner courtyard and gradient levels to reach the highest point open to the sky again to overlook out over the courtyard and see the project completely to reflect the full picture of art.

空間體驗通過從外部舞台過渡並在視覺上或隱含地連接到內部庭院和漸變水平的畫廊中移動來達到這一點,再次達到向天空敞開的最高點,從而俯瞰庭院並完全看到該項目以反映出 藝術的全貌。

The Museum of Modern Arab Art reflects the Arab identity in a contemporary way where the main entrance is emphasized to penetrate the traditional skyline that preserves the Arab identity and Sharjah in particular to announce its modern personality Which is commensurate with being a museum incubator of art of lines that simulate the flow of Arabic fonts (calligraphy) and by adding water features at the entrance as a witness of the Arab history and their companion throughout and a common starting point for Arabs and a real influence on their lives.

阿拉伯現代藝術博物館以當代方式反映阿拉伯人的身份,正門強調強調貫穿保留了阿拉伯人身份的傳統天際線和沙迦,尤其是宣布其現代個性,這與成為博物館的藝術孵化器相稱。 線條模擬阿拉伯字體(書法)的流動,並在入口處添加水景,以作為阿拉伯歷史及其整個伴侶的見證,以及阿拉伯人的共同起點和對他們生活的真正影響。
