4. Louvre Abu Dhabi 

Louvre Abu Dhabi is the largest museum in the Arabian Peninsula with a  total area covering approximately 260,000 sq ft. The origin of the Louvre stems from the combination of two cultures, France and the United Arab Emirates to develop a new kind of cultural institution. The museum is rooted in universal human values which means focusing on what unites us: the stories of human creativity that transcend individual cultures or civilizations, the first of its kind in the region. The museum is designed as a seemingly floating dome structure & its web-patterned dome allowing the sun to filter through. The overall effect is meant to represent rays of sunlight passing through date palm fronds in an oasis.
