Concluding this week with our fifth and final contending entry in this year’s LOOP Design Awards, the Etihad Museum in the Architecture: Cultural category!
Located next to the historic Union House on the Dubai waterfront, the Etihad Museum honours the 1971 signing of the document that created the United Arab Emirates and celebrates the rich culture and history of its people. Its dramatic entrance pavilion rests lightly upon a reﬂecting pool and plaza, with undulating parabolic curves representing the parchment upon which the unification agreement was written. Seven rows of embossed bronze columns mimic the form and angle of pens in motion, referencing the act of writing which formalized the seven emirates in this unification.
