"Louvre Abu Dhabi"

Geez. The Louvre used to be prestigious. This is like a fine steak house moving into a McDonald's, even if it is in the tallest and flashiest building built by the best western architects and western technology petro-bucks can buy.

Obviously the Louvre wouldn't be in Abu Dhabi if not for an accident of natural history that put oil under the sands of the UAE
