Rain inside the Louvre, Abu Dhabi

Tribute to Jean Nouvel’s Louvre museum and his ode to nature.

Inspired by the palm trees of Abu Dhabi, the eight different layers of steel are creating 7850 geometric stars. It filters the bright sunlight through the perforations, aka ‘rain of light’. Or in this very rare occasion: real rain
