The much-anticipated museum outpost opens as the anchor for a new island cultural district in the UAE. Don't miss the time-lapse construction video!

To meet stringent environmental control requirements within the museum galleries, the design team were asked not to deviate by more than one degree from 21 degrees centigrade or 5% humidity range. This guarantees exceptionally stable environmental conditions for artworks and visitors.

A series of light analysis models were provided by AJN showing the levels of brightness required in different parts of the building. Basing themselves on these indications the engineers developed a design tool to vary automatically the widths of the cladding system so as to obtain the required level of transparency

Erecting and assembling a dome of this size, weight and complexity was a massive undertaking which Waagner Biro, the Austrian steel construction specialists pulled off remarkably. Using a 1,600- tonne crawler crane the workers hoisted 85 “super-sized” pre-assembled components weighing up to 65 tons.

The new Louvre Abu Dhabi is Jean Nouvel’s extraordinary vision of a steel patterned dome spanning a cluster of buildings reminiscent of an eastern souk.

Using cutting-edge technology to create the ‘Rain of Light’ The dome’s ‘Rain of Light’ effect is one of the defining features of the Louvre Abu Dhabi. It’s perfectly radiating geometry has been the subject of many models and mock ups over the years
