Zayed National Museum Started


Posted on 2019-04-19 Author:LIYUCSF

It is reported that a new museum, Zayed National Museum, will be constructed in Abu Dhabi. This project will occupy 38,000 square meters of land, and anticipated to be completed in 2020. Once completed, it will be the centrepiece of the Saadiyat Island Cultural District and will show case the history, culture and, more recently, the social and economic transformation of the Emirates.Architecturally, this project combines a highly efficient, contemporary form with elements of traditional Arabic design.


The galleries are housed within a mound, whose form is an abstraction of the topography of the Emirates. Above this rise five lightweight steel structures,sculpted aerodynamically to act as solar thermal towers. The heat at the top of the towers works to draw the air up vertically through the galleries due to the thermal stack effect. Air vents open at the top of the wing-shaped towers taking advantage of the negative pressure on the lee of the wing profile todraw the hot air out. Fresh air is also captured at low level and drawn through buried ground-cooling pipes and then released into the museum’s lobby.


Balancing the lightweight steel structures with a more monumental interior experience,pod-shaped galleries are suspended over a dramatic top-lit central lobby, which is dug into the earth to exploit its thermal properties and brings together shops, cafes and informal venues for performances of poetry and dance.
