Project 01: Ancient Egyptian Architecture and Design
Architectural buildings designed in 2700 B.C.-1400 B.C. in Ancient Egypt were made mostly of stone and mud-bricks. Pharaohs Menkaure, Khufu, Khafre, and Hatshepsut were some of the best known architects during this time. They created buildings that were mostly pyramids and temples. Some of the buildings during this time consist of the pyramids of Giza, the temple of Karnak, and the temple of Hatshepsut.

Ancient Egypt Analysis
The building above has four pyramids that lead up to a big pyramid/temple. Along the walkway, sides of the smaller pyramids, and front of the big pyramid are statues of pharaohs from Ancient Egypt. There is a court in the middle of the pyramids for ceremonies to start. From the court, there is a long hallway straight into the big pyramid. In the Back corner of the pyramid is a tomb for the Ancient Egyptian pharaohs to rest. The design was created based on the Pyramids of Giza, the Temple of Karnak, and the Temple of Hatshepsut.
