French President Francois Hollande (Center L), Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan (2nd L), president of the Abou Dhabi authority for tourism and culture in 2014 The Louvre Abu Dhabi, flagged as "the first universal museum in the Arab world", is due to open in 2017 after a decade in the making and five years behind schedule.

Helsinki nixes Guggenheim museum bid after six-year row

In 2015, a French studio, Moreau Kusunoki Architectes, won an international design competition organised to give form to the project, with a concept grouping sombre rectangular pavilions and a tower resembling a lighthouse. Helsinki's city council buried Thursday a contested plan to build a museum bearing the name of the US-based Guggenheim Foundation, primarily due to the price tag. Opponents of the museum said one of the Finnish capital's best locations facing the presidential palace in the port would have been handed over to the "McDonald's of art", referring to the Guggenheim chain of museums in cities including New York, Bilbao and Venice. Efforts to build a Guggenheim museum in Helsinki began back in 2011, but the project has been plagued by funding problems and political opposition.


Helsinki rejects Guggenheim museum plan

An undated artist's rendering shows a design of a planned new Guggenheim museum in Helsinki By Jussi Rosendahl HELSINKI (Reuters) - Helsinki will not follow Bilbao and Venice in hosting a Guggenheim museum after city councillors finally rejected proposals first made five years ago for a new building on the Finnish capital's waterfront. The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation raised the idea for the museum in 2011 but the project faced strong resistance from the start as many Finns coping with an economy in recession and austerity measures considered it a waste of money. Following a five-hour meeting, Helsinki city council turned down the plan to build the museum on what is now a car park for the third time in the early hours of Thursday, with 53 members voting against a revised proposal and 32 supporting it.

South African cave pebble outshines treasures at British Museum

A Mapungubwe rhinoceros is seen on display as part of the exhibition "South Africa: the Art of a Nation", at the British Museum in London In a corner of the British Museum's new South African exhibition, near an ancient golden rhino and a collection of apartheid-era campaign badges, sits a glass case holding a pitted, reddish-brown stone. It is the Makapansgat pebble, on display for the first time in its three-million-year history, curators reckon - an object that, in its own way, outshines the other treasures in the museum's halls. Experts theorize a very early ancestor of humans, Australopithecus africanus, picked up the pebble and took it home, mainly because it was interested in a pattern of lines on the surface that, even today, look startlingly like a face.
