Synopsis

Presented in partnership with Provencher_Roy

North American Premiere

How can an architectural concept bridge tradition and modernity, as well as cultures? That is the question that this documentary seeks to answer as it retells the construction of the Louvre Abu Dhabi. By exploring behind the scenes of this “universal museum”, which plays with spatial relations between inside and outside in everchanging light, we can better understand the creative process that guided architect Jean Nouvel as he gave birth to this museum of arts, born to withstand the desert’s climate at the crossroads between West and Middle-East. This film also addresses the educational and cultural issues that stem from the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s rise.
