As mentioned earlier, Louvre Abu Dhabi Residences is a development in Saadiyat Grove, which is located in the Saadiyat Cultural District. This area is famed for its ultimate collection of iconic museums, in addition to Louvre Abu Dhabi, as the emirate pledged to invest AED 22B (USD 6B) in cultural and creative industries in 2021. The upcoming attractions in this area include:
The Zayed National Museum, due to open in 2023, will narrate the story of the late Sheikh Zayed, the founding father of the UAE, and will immerse its visitors in the history of the entire region and its cultural connections with other countries worldwide. It was designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect; Lord Norman Foster and will feature 7 main galleries and the Sheikh Zayed Library.
The Abrahamic Family House, scheduled to be inaugurated in 2022, will encompass a mosque, a synagogue and a church, as well as a cultural center in one complex as a beacon of understanding and peaceful coexistence between different religions. Designed by Sir David Adjaye, this landmark is closely followed by the Grand Imam Ahmad el-Tayeb of al-Azhar and Pope Francis.
The Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, the largest of the 4 existing Guggenheim outposts, is set to be completed by 2025. There will be a cluster of galleries of varying heights, characters and shapes, as well as archives, a library, a conservation laboratory and a children’s education facility. The museum owes its astonishing design to Frank Gehry, the mastermind behind the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain.
