sadly, the image quality of the renderings i've been uploading on Urbika through TinyPic have been reduced by TinyPic's servers, so i have to upload it all again.

Updated rendering with the Zayed National Museum in the background.

I see. This render is a lot sharper for sure and has much better detail. It's good to see the inclusion of Zayed National Museum here also. Thanks for posting

Developer invites artists to inspect worker conditions on Saadiyat

Jen Thomas | Last Updated: Mar 18, 2011

Quote:
ABU DHABI // The developer of Abu Dhabi's Guggenheim museum has responded to artists' protests over worker conditions at the construction site by inviting them to conduct a first-hand inspection.

More than 130 prominent artists and curators pledged to boycott the Guggenheim this week in protest at worker conditions on Saadiyat Island, the site of the museum. However, the Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC) said yesterday it had a long-standing and deep commitment to protect workers' rights.

Guggenheim Abu Dhabi boycott remains despite PwC move

Quote:
By Andy Sambidge | Sunday, 5 June 2011 8:39 PM

The international coalition of artists who pledged to boycott the Guggenheim Museum Abu Dhabi over worker conditions on Saadiyat Island has questioned the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) as monitor.

The Gulflabor group of 43 artists said PwC's name was not on a list of monitors recommended by US-based Human Rights Watch to Guggenheim Foundation and Abu Dhabi's Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC).

It said that although it welcomed the move to appoint the monitor, the boycott remained in place.

"We are waiting to be informed by TDIC and the Guggenheim as to whether PwC has any existing business relationship with any of the firms it will be asked to monitor on Saadiyat Island," Gulflabor said in a statement posted on its website.

The concrete tender for the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi was issued in February 2011 and work will commence in the second quarter of 2011. This package encapsulates 162,000 cubic metres of concrete, which will be used for much of the museum’s ‘back of house’ areas, as well as the platform from which the main museum and gallery structures will be built from.

The placement of 1,400 piles began in August last year by Al Habtoor/HSSG JV. They will be completed by the second quarter of 2011.

Concrete tenders returned to Contractors in July 2011 unopened. Staff released from project, so don't hold your breath.

construction re-scheduled to a later stage

Extract from The National of 30th October:
TDIC originally intended to build the two museums at the same time as the Louvre Abu Dhabi. But the new plan, which still has to be approved by the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, calls for the Louvre to be built first, followed by the National Museum and then the Guggenheim.[]
The decision to delay the National Museum and the Guggenheim was based on a desire to create separate opening events for each museum, more than any funding issues, Mr O'Connor said.

Louvre Abu Dhabi will now open in 2015; Guggenheim in 2017

Quote:
By AP | Published Wednesday, January 25, 2012

The state developer of an ambitious cultural district in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday outlined a new timetable for the stalled project, with its first attraction - a branch of the Louvre - slated now to open in 2015.

A division of the Guggenheim will follow in 2017, which like the outpost of the French art institution will make its debut in the Emirati capital years later than originally planned.

Artistic works blossom at the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi

Quote:
As the Louvre Abu Dhabi shows off its latest acquisitions in Birth of a Museum, currently on exhibition at Saadiyat Island, the city's emerging cultural district is also turning its attention to another big name museum due to be erected on its shores.

The Guggenheim Abu Dhabi is steadily revealing artworks that its curatorial teams have been acquiring ahead of the museum's opening in 2017. Early next month, Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (ADTCA) brings five major contemporary artists to the capital, all who have works in the new collection, in a bid to introduce the public to the artistic practices of this diverse group.
El Anatsui, Adel El-Siwi, Youssef Nabil, Feng Mengbo and James Rosenquist will be in Abu Dhabi May 6-8 as part of the museum's Talking Art Series of discussions and workshops.

"It's exciting to give these artists the opportunity to meet each other and have a coming together of curators, artists and the people of Abu Dhabi," says Tairone Bastien, head of public programmes at ADTCA. "That's essentially what this museum is going to offer, an opportunity for a contemporary art conversation to take place on Saadiyat Island."
