Here in Abu Dhabi, we’re all about record-breaking attractions and garnering envious glances from across the world.
Look, our city is amazing, and we know it.
Add these to the fact that Abu Dhabi was named one of the most friendly city’s in the world and Abu Dhabi and Dubai were ranked as the most liveable in the region and you can safely say we’ve got it good here in the capital.
Adding to the acclaim, The Founder's Memorial has just won a prestigious international award.
The Constellation, the 3D portrait of Sheikh Zayed, has won at The CODA (Collaboration of Design + Art) awards 2019 in the Institutional Category.
Celebrating projects that most successfully integrate commissioned art into interior, architectural, or public spaces, the awards are an annual celebration of inspirational projects across the world.
Ameena Al Hamadi, head of cultural tours department at The Founder’s Memorial said: "This celestial display evokes the timelessness of Sheikh Zayed’s vision, which continues to offer the UAE a guiding light along a path of progress and prosperity.
"This innovative artwork is amongst the main stops highlighted during cultural tours where the life, legacy, and values of the late Sheikh Zayed are brought to the fore, seeking to enable future generations to recognise and remember him as a symbol of humanity and unity for generations on end.”
