The Louvre, Abu Dhabi
  • QSI were appointed by the owner to assess and provide an opinion on the main consortium’s claim submissions.
  • Pritzker-prize winning architect Jean Nouvel sought inspiration for the concept of Louvre Abu Dhabi in traditional Arabic architectural culture, creating a ‘museum city’ in the sea covered by a vast dome. A vast dome, 180 metres in diameter, covers the majority of the museum city. This impressive structure is visible from the sea, the surrounding areas and Abu Dhabi city centre.  The 8 layered dome is a marvel of geometric design allowing light to penetrate the layers and creating a cinematic “rain of light” effect as the sun’s path progresses throughout the day. Supporting piers are hidden within the building to give the impression that the dome is floating.
  • Louvre Abu Dhabi’s complex engineering concept has made it one of the most innovative and challenging museum projects built in recent times and achieved several prestigious international design and sustainability awards.
  • The construction of the museum took place from 2013 to 2017.
