Foster + Partner’s UAE Pavilion nears completion

Abu Dhabi’s dune-like UAE Pavilion, designed by Foster + Partners, will be completed in time to host an art event in mid November.

The pavilion has been relocated to Saadiyat island after hosting the UAE’s  national exhibition at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai.

Reconstructed under the instruction of TDIC and commissioned by the National Media Council, the pavilion will now hold cultural functions such as this year’s Abu Dhabi Art, which runs from from 16th to 19th November.

Resembling a golden sand dune, the structure is the first TDIC project to achieve a 2 Pearl Building Rating under Estidama.
