Recreating parts of UAE’s
integral cultural elements, Nouvel designed a falaj-inspired water system
running through the museum, inspired by ancient Arabian engineering whilst the
orderly lace dome borrows inspiration from the interlaced palm leaves
traditionally used as roofing material in many parts of the country that
results in an enchanting play of light. The juxtaposition of different
civilizations in the same spaces, the Louvre Abu Dhabi illustrates similarities
and exchanges from the shared human experience going beyond geography,
nationality, and history.
