The first of its kind in the region, the Louvre represents the contemporary value of the Arab world. It combines the UAE's vision of cultural progression together with France's rich expertise in the world of arts and museums. It possesses artifacts from the begging of mankind to the present day. Not only is it interesting from a cultural standpoint, but the Louvre is also an architectural masterpiece. Designed by the notorious French architect Jean Nouvel, inspiration was drawn from traditional Arabic architectural culture.
