Egypt Galleries, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford | Rick Mather Architects

The Egyptian galleries used to be a series of little dark rooms finishing with a dead end that you almost had to feel your way out of. But they were full of the most amazing objects - the collection rivals the Cairo Museum in some areas - so we've made them into a route that visitors can find their way around easily and naturally, without a map, but with the feeling that they're finding things by serendipity. There are glimpses through to other galleries, each leading you on gently to the next. And there are no dead ends.
