The Louvre Abu Dhabi, designed by Jean Nouvel, opened in November to a huge media response. Visitors can engage with several exhibits designed by us—interactive media stations illustrating historical artifacts from various epochs and cultures. ART+COM Studios is also part of the team currently working on the National Museum of Qatar, another Nouvel-designed building.
Two-hundred kilometers north-west, in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, visitors to the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture are led into an exploration of culture by a stream of knowledge delivered via a variety of new media elements. The knowledge stream begins with a 30-meter long Welcome Wall and appears on different surfaces throughout the building. It culminates in a media room in which knowledge is discussed, collaboratively generated and saved to the stream. A soft opening is currently underway; the official opening follows in summer this year.
