Louvre Abu Dhabi by Jean Nouvel

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is one of the most interesting museums completed recently. Simple detailing and wonderfully executed. Elegant colour scheme and play with materials creates spaces which are simple, yet refined. Light is modulated through an interesting skylight design, which lets in filtered diffused light which is apt for a museum. The scale is monumental, also to accommodate the large sculptures and installations. Overall it is a space which does not try to be over bearing but one which creates a wonderful setting for the art on display, which can also be considered as an art in itself.
