Description

An oasis of culture: Forget sun and sand, Abu Dhabi is
all about fine food and fantastic art.Abu Dhabi has been busy rebranding itself and now wants to be known as the Gulf’s capital for culture and cuisine.As part of this, £3billion has been spent on creating the world’s most spectacular new art gallery. The Louvre Abu Dhabi, designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel, has opened on Saadiyat Island, with art critics drooling with pleasure at its contents and physical beauty.The aluminium and stainless steel dome – 650ft wide and open on all sides – is supported by four concealed piers and so appears to hover above the desert like a lattice flying saucer. It is a dramatic architectural statement and no doubt will become as recognisable a symbol of this wealthy emirate as the Burj al Arab is of neighbouring Dubai.
