The Louvre Abu Dhabi
Project: Roof clading of the Louvre Museum Abu Dhabi
Service: Fabrication of aluminium profile brackets
Scope: Fabrication and assembly of 7,000 aluminium stars
Client: White Aluminium for Waagner Biro Gulf LLC
EFP was required to create thousands of aluminium triangles which would intersect over 8 layers to create a stunning visual effect of a sky full of stars. The whole project included the roof cladding on the Louvre Museum Abu Dhabi through the fabrication of aluminium profile and brackets.
EFP produced 7,000 aluminium stars for their client, White Aluminium for Waagner Biro Gulf LLC for the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
An amazing and innovative project designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, the Louvre Abu Dhabi has increased cultural opportunities in the UAE.
It is heavily influenced by Arabian architecture, with more than two-thirds of the entire museum being encased in a huge white 180m wide dome. The Louvre Abu Dhabi is an immense 260,000 square foot structure that currently holds the record for the largest museum in the Arabian Peninsula.
