Video This may come as a surprise: the Louvre Abu Dhabi is a subtle piece of architecture. In a booming city whose population has tripled in the last 20 years, where surreal landscapes mix with improbable towers, this museum has been over a decade in the making and is reputed to have a total price tag of over $1 billion. Its opening was attended by the Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed and President Emmanuel Macron of France. So one might expect a bit more . . .

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

Creating the Rain of Light – Louvre, Abu Dhabi.

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.
