The new lighting system on buildings in Al-Muizz Street in Historic Cairo - ET
CAIRO – 8 December 2020: The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is close to completing the works of the first phase of the project to modernize and develop night lighting systems on Al-Muizz Street and all the ancient buildings in it.
This is within the framework of the ministry's keenness to develop archaeological areas and highlight the artistic elements in them.
The first phase of the project included the complete installation and modernization of the lighting systems of the historic street.
The second phase, which is currently being implemented, includes the installation of a specific type of lighting fixtures for the facades and arenas of ancient buildings on Al-Muizz Street to highlight its aesthetics and artistic dimensions.
The lighting system for the facades of the ancient buildings on the street is done according to the nature of each building, as the searchlights were used submerged in the ground, as well as others that stand out in some places in front of the walls of the facade of each building, lit by a degree of warm white tones.
As for the archaeological buildings, the placement of searchlights on the facades was avoided in order to maintain the flow of its heritage shape.
The project includes lighting the monuments from the inside with special specifications that take into account the space and the nature of each building and its holdings.
The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities took into account the use of special lamps that do not cause any damage or high temperatures during their operation so as not to affect the buildings.
