After the Queen Elizabeth II Great Court in the British Museum, the Louvre in Paris and Abu Dhabi, now the building envelope of the Pavilion of the Etihad Museum in Dubai was also built by Waagner-Biro.

Waagner-Biro has once again confirmed its position as a specialist for museum buildings worldwide. After the Queen Elizabeth II Great Court in the British Museum, the Louvre in Paris and Abu Dhabi, now the building envelope of the Pavilion of the Etihad Museum in Dubai was also built by Waagner-Biro.

For Waagner-Biro, which has been operating in the United Arab Emirates since 1964, the construction of the Etihad Museum was a particularly prestigious project.

"As an international specialist for museum buildings, we are proud that we have won this important cultural mission. The Etihad Museum documents the history and tradition of the country and we are delighted to have contributed to this project,“ said Thomas Jost, CEO of Waagner-Biro.

The Etihad Museum was built in a historical district of Dubai. There, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was founded on 2 December 1971 in the "Union House".

At the instigation of the Sheikh of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the new museum will document the history of the UAE since the signing of the founding document. The exhibition deals with the rich heritage of the UAE and is also to attract international tourists.

The supporting structure of the approximately 2,000 m² two-storey pavilion is made up of a 950-ton primary and secondary steel structure and is supported on the ground floor by the adjacent reinforced concrete construction. The 21 supports, which are inclined by 21 degrees to the vertical, carry the curved roof construction and the upper floor of the pavilion.
