Abu Dhabi, 11/2/2015 12:00:00 AM - Louvre Abu Dhabi, the world-class museum whose construction is in advance stages in the Saadiyat Cultural District, received the ‘Project of the Future’ award at the inaugural Identity Design Awards 2015 for its exceptional design by Pritzker Prize winning architect Jean Nouvel. The category was only open to projects that are currently under construction, which are expected to be finished within the next three years, and which are establishing the UAE as a centre of architecture and design.
The museum – one of three short-listed projects – was selected during a special live vote during the award ceremony at the Intercontinental Dubai Marina. The award was received on behalf of Jean Nouvel by senior TDIC representatives in the presence of real estate, architectural and design leaders. The awards ceremony was organised by identity, the region’s only magazine dedicated to contemporary design, interiors, architecture and property. All submitted projects were judged by a prestigious panel that featured celebrated international architects and designers.
Encompassing 9,200 square metres of art galleries, Louvre Abu Dhabi will feature a 6,000-square-metre Permanent Gallery that houses the museum's permanent collection, while the Temporary Gallery will be a dedicated space of 2,000 square metres presenting temporary exhibitions of international standards. In addition to paintings, the museum will also present a diverse range of artefacts that together, will take visitors through a universal journey from the most ancient to contemporary art works from different civilisations.
