Sir Norman Foster’s Sheikh Zayed Museum

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

The Sheikh Zayed Museum which is–being designed by Sir Norman Foster–will be quite an icon. I’m not yet sure how the spaces will be used, but it will a sight to behold, which is what a lot of Abu Dhabi and Dubai is about.

The view from a distance is unique and powerful, but I wonder how the subterranean spaces will interact wth the blossoms above grade. The museum and this exhibit represent a great program to honor the father of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed.
