Louvre Abu Dhabi’s dome structure installation complete - video

The Louvre Abu Dhabi has reached yet another milestone with the installation of the final super sized steel element on its dome. The dome structure consists of 85 super-sized steel elements and weighs 7,000 tonnes. Back in December 2013, the first super-sized element was lifted and put into place. Today, the dome sits atop of 120 temporary support towers, which will be later on disassembled and removed leaving the dome, as initially designed, resting on four main piers only.
