Keywords:Space, Fetish, Egyptian Architecture, Body-Space Relationship
Many monumental works from the Ancient Egyptian civilization that have survived to the present day continue to be a matter of curiosity for people ever since, due to the mysteries related to both to the construction technique and to the purpose of their construction, and these works are discussed on various scientific platforms. It is known that there are many temples and pyramids built in different periods and sizes in Egypt. The best-known of these are the temples of Abu Simbel and Karnak, which are attributed to the gods as places of worship, and the pyramid trilogy in the Giza region of Cairo can be given as examples. The research article, which was formed within the scope center of these structures, focuses on the narration of the transformation of the spaces in question into more sacred spaces that apart from these attributes were dedicated containing to the pharaohs’ individuality. It tries to reveal how the body, which is in search of material in line with its spiritual deficiencies, can transform the space that it is in contact with, into a fetish object, accompanied with explanations in line with the data. In addition, this research covers the functions of these spaces in line with their ascribed identities, how they are defined and how these definitions can change in connection with the users of the space. In the research, the descriptions of temple and pyramid structures, which contain the related concepts and are predicted to serve to many different purposes, and the sacred object that these structures contain, were used. As a result of the research, it has been found that the holy buildings, which are evaluated in addition to the religious functions correlated with their construction purposes, have also an aspect that glorifies the selves of their owners, completes and defines their spiritual deficiencies.
