Located on Abu Dhabi's Saadiyat Island, the new Louvre Abu Dhabi appears like a mirage in the Persian Gulf: a domed structure of intricately intertwined metalwork hovering over the water, fusing landscape and human ingenuity. The inaugural museum of Saadiyat's blossoming cultural district, which will also house the Guggenheim and the Zayed National Museum, the building is an architectural marvel with a contemporary façade and sleek interiors that display some of the world’s most revered masterpieces. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning French architect Jean Nouvel, the Louvre was inspired by traditional Arab medinas and incorporates elements like soaring white spaces, geometric angles and abundant water features. The debut of the museum anticipates a zeitgeist in the Middle East, as Abu Dhabi is poised to become a meeting ground for intercultural and art-focused dialogues.
