Spectacular interiors and bewitching plays of light at Ateliers Jean Nouvel’s museum can’t overcome a sense that, though subverted, colonial attitudes still linger.


 
Louvre Abu Dhabi, like a Bond villain’s lair, floating in the sea.


Nouvel’s ‘Arab village’ of galleries beneath Nouvel’s enormous fractal dome.


 
Site specific art works fail to enliven the Medina’s paths and courtyards.


 
The Grand Vestibule; white, minimalist, with small groupings of exhibits in delicate, bespoke vitrines, sets the tone of the whole gallery experience.


 
25,000 individual panels of glass create the shimmering ceilings. Stone planks change throughout the galleries but are all equally opulent.


 
Ai Wei Wei’s 2016 Fountain of Light sparkles beneath one of Nouvel’s sparkling roof lights.


 
The effect of light passing over the dome is both memorable and mesmeric.
