Growth and development is the essence of all what happens around us in the physical world, in nature, in sciences, in our knowledge of science and in our own perception of our existence, its purpose and where we are heading. In the physical world, it is easy to sense change and track the different phases of growth and development, which may be gradual or abrupt, slow or fast, triggered by inherent stimulus or by synthesis with other components. Growth may also come pleasantly and constructively, taking the positive side; but also can sometimes be fierce and destructive. In all cases it demonstrates a huge power and a continuous change.
In a time when the scientific contributions of the middle east are often forgotten a revival opportunity arises to design a The Cairo Science Museum. The concept and layout of the project is inspired by infinite knowledge from fractal structure via the museum layout of combining historical inventions + contemporary state of the art contributions.
