Topic of the Week: The Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum

Architecture is the process and planning of designing physical structures. This year there are looking to be a number of cities around the world which will celebrate the openings of major new museums. The museums will stand as a feature of architecture as well as a showcase of the artwork inside. One of the museums will be The Louvre Abu Dhabi which is designed by Jean Nouvelle.

The collection will include hundreds of manuscripts, artwork and items with historical and cultural significance. This new location is encapsulated by its eye catching huge metal dome roof. Opening later this year and surrounded by the sea, it is an extraordinary setting likely to be welcomed by many visitors looking to see unique collections as well as browse its modern architecture.
