Modern Architecture at the Aswan High Dam

Yearly Nile floods have been both a blessing and a course since the days of pharaohs, but it wasn’t until when the mighty river was finally controlled. A massive, multi-year effort the dam was seen as a way to help Egypt advance technologically and to provide much needed irrigation to farmers, minimizing the risk of draught, famine and disease. You can visit the dam today and when you do, be sure to stop by the uniquely Soviet inspired design of the Friendship Memorial commemorating the cooperation between the USSR and Egypt to construct the might structure.
