The Most An­tic­i­pated Open­ing of the Year

SLOW Magazine - - Must Go -

Ten years af­ter the €1 bil­lion con­tract was signed to cre­ate the Lou­vre Abu Dhabi, and fol­low­ing mul­ti­ple con­struc­tion de­lays, the mu­seum is set to open this year, gen­er­at­ing a buzz in­ter­na­tion­ally as one of the most an­tic­i­pated events of the year. The stylish out­post of the great Parisian in­sti­tu­tion has al­ready an­nounced a num­ber of ex­hi­bi­tions and ac­qui­si­tions. The Lou­vre’s stun­ning plaza will be an­other high­light as a rain of light shines down through the com­plex dome’s geo­met­ric pat­tern, a work of art in its own right. The com­plete com­plex is now be­ing thor­oughly checked, and every mi­nor fault, whether aes­thetic or tech­ni­cal, is to be fixed prior to its grand open­ing.
