Maritime Museum by Ando

About the concept of architect Tadao Ando: The concept is inspired by Abu Dhabi’s natural surrounding, landscape and maritime traditions. Its ship-like interior with floating decks will guide visitors through the exhibition space.
"The elegant architecture begins with a unique space carved out of a simple volume that is shaped by the force and fluidity of Abu Dhabi’s wind. (to find out more..)
The site is at Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi which will also feature works by 3 other starchitects - Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel & Frank Ghery.
