louvre abu dhabi

 The second project in the art district of Saadiyat Island is the Louvre. This in my opinion is one of the most interesting and beautiful design I have ever seen. Jean Nouvel created a brilliant piece of architecture bring to life the art that this 260,000 sq ft building will house. I love how the conceptual drawings showed light passing through the slits of the lens making it look like the heavens are casting their light upon those under it. The building is set to be completed by 2012 with a price tag of approximately $108 million to $140 million dollars.
