The Louvre Abu Dhabi, currently under construction at Saadiyat Island's new Cultural District, is due for completion in 2012/13 will form part of the world's single largest concentration of premier cultural institutions.


“Abu Dhabi’s ultimate goal in creating the Louvre Abu Dhabi, and indeed the entire Saadiyat Island Cultural District, is to build a platform for deeper and more meaningful exchange among people from our own region and from all parts of the globe.”
- Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates.

Designed by Pritzker Prize winner Nouvel, the Louvre Abu Dhabi will be a 24,000 square metre complex of pavilions, plazas, alleyways and canals 'evoking the image of a city floating on the sea'.
