Louvre Abu Dhabi - All set to dazzle you

Next time you visit the beautiful Abu Dhabi make sure you put Louvre Abu Dhabi in your must-visit schedule. Louvre Abu Dhabi is being launched soon as a universal museum in the Arab world. It’s a place where lovers of art and history can discover and exchange information, know about discoveries and gain knowledge, spend long hours wondering on history, learn about art and indulge in enlightening discussion about art and culture. The place is the result of an alliance with Abu Dhabi and France.

The recent development in the construction includes the removal of temporary sea protection walls and the illumination of the museum’s iconic dome. The process of removing the sea walls, and integration of the sea with the museum, will take place in three stages and result in Louvre Abu Dhabi transforming into Jean Nouvel’s vision of a ‘Museum City’ on the sea.

4,500 lights installed to the dome’s steel structure have also been completed, illuminating Louvre Abu Dhabi at night to make it a stunning visual sight for visitors. This permanent feature is controlled by a lighting system which allows the adjustment of the level of brightness according to requirement.

Louvre Abu Dhabi has been designed as a ‘museum city’ on the sea, with its series of white buildings inspired by the medina and low-lying Arab settlements. In total there are approximately 55 individual buildings making up this museum city.

The 180 meter-wide dome covers the majority of the museum city and its complex pattern is the result of a highly studied geometric design, repeated at various sizes and angles in the eight superimposed layers.

Light penetrates the eight layers creating a cinematic effect as the sun’s path progresses throughout the day named the ‘rain of light’.
