This museum complex stands in the sea, off the southern shore of Saadiyat Island. It includes 55 buildings, with 23 galleries and a pedestrian plaza set above a complex 2-storey basement (extending 8m below sea level). The project features an iconic 180m diameter perforated steel dome, reaching over 40m high, and creating a ‘rain of light’.

Brian Cole is a Director at Buro Happold, and his career has involved work on a number of notable international projects, including football stadia and the Jubilee Line Extension.
