Etihad Museum Dubai Building Photos UAE

The Etihad Museum by Moriyama & Teshima, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, encompasses the Union house, the location where the emirate’s founding fathers signed a declaration that marked the formation of the UAE in 1971 – it is now part of the museum complex.
The structure is designed in the shape of a manuscript, with seven columns built into the museum to resemble the pens used to sign the original declaration. The building has eight permanent pavilions.

Dubai Marina including the twisting tower – ‘Cayan Tower‘, the development is successfully enlivened by the water, the city needs more developments like this. The gardens and lake at Dubai Mall / Burj Khalifah are another good example of how buildings are fed by proper landscaping.

‘Together’ sculpture, Downtown Dubai

“Arab dignity and individuality are celebrated in full artistic flourish with ‘Together,’ a sculpture unveiled in 2011 at Downtown Dubai, the 500-acre megaproject developed by Emaar Properties PJSC and described as ‘The Centre of Now.’

Together sculpture, Downtown Dubai

Sculpted by Syrian artist Lutfi Romhein, ‘Together’ features two sculptures – that of an Arab man and an Arab woman, chiselled to perfection. Clad in a flowing white dish-dasha, the male figure has been sculpted in Carrara marble from Italy, while the kandoora-clad female sculpture is made of black granite from Sweden.

Together Downtown Dubai sculpture

Commissioned by Ms Samia Saleh, the owner of Courtyard Gallery, Dubai, for Emaar Properties, both the sculptures are 4.25 metres high, and rest on a granite base, on Emaar Boulevard near the entrance to Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.”
