The Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), also known as the Giza Museum, is a planned museum of artifacts of ancient Egypt. Described as the largest archaeological museum in the world, the museum is scheduled to open in 2015. The museum will be sited on 50 hectares (120 acres) of land approximately two kilometers from the Giza pyramids and is part of a new master plan for the plateau.

Non fractal insides.

But outsides shows clear fractal pattern:
ARCHITECTURAL PROPOSAL: Architecturalizing the Face of the Plateau

The proposal for the Grand Egyptian Museum begins by forming a new ‘edge’ to the Plateau, by creating a gentle slope as a thin veil of translucent stone structured by fractal geometry; opening and closing like foldings within the desert sand. As seen from Cairo, this newly inscribed surface of translucent stone constructs a dynamic identity; yet from within the museum, this surface traces a new visual trajectory towards the Pyramids. The wall of the museum can be understood as a rhythm of structural (physical) and spatial (effect-ive) foldings within the Plateau face, architecturalizing and intensifying its timeless surface.


Alternative project are pretty cool.

It looks pretty much as Sierpinski Triangle

Here is more. Probably it will be realised in practice, becouse nothing too hard;)

And The Menjaurus Wall will reach a height of 35m in places.


Sieprinski triangles seems to be easy and nattural constrction patern, so not much suprising.
