As early as 2006, Avesta Group has been involved in the Louvre Abu Dhabi project, by taking part in its planning.

 

Abu Dhabi’s Universal Museum

It is the first museum of its kind in the Arab world: a universal museum that focuses on shared human stories across civilizations and cultures. Born of an agreement between the governments of Abu Dhabi and France, the Louvre Abu Dhabi displays art, manuscripts and objects of historical, cultural and sociological significance. Louvre Abu Dhabi’s values and identity are based on discovery, exchange and education. The ultimate aim of the museum is to allow visitors to discover for themselves how art developed in different cultures and civilizations around the world.

 

An International Cooperation Project

Louvre Abu Dhabi will be developing its own national collection, which is enriched by loans from French museums including Musée du Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, and Centre Pompidou. Louvre Abu Dhabi has been developed with the expertise of the Agence France-Museums and in partnership with the Musée du Louvre. The “museum city” of Louvre Abu Dhabi is housed in a series of buildings designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel.
