    5 years from next week! How precise!

    Frank Gehry's Guggenheim museum in Abu Dhabi has a new opening date: 2026. the news was revealed by the Guggenheim's director, Richard Armstrong, at a press conference in Basel.

    ‘We think it should be five years from next week,’ the art newspaper reported, adding he will visit the middle east soon. ‘it looks like everything is coming together so we can say something definitive. it has been a relatively long gestation.’

    First announced in 2006 and scheduled to open in 2012, the long-awaited project has suffered many ups-and-downs. a new opening date was set for 2017, which obviously didn’t happen, and by the time the museum’s plans seemed to be washed up.

    New Google Earth images.
    There looks to be cranes on site at the Guggenheim Site which are new.








  3. An early model for the Guggenheim Museum on Saadiyat Island. There is a full video of Frank Gehry speaking about the design of the museum. It's really fascinating, it can't embed but you can watch it on the link below.
