Reviving heritage

Qasr Al Hosn Exhibition

Abu Dhabi (UAE)

After designing two exhibitions for the Qasr Al Hosn Festival in 2016, we were asked to create a new temporary exhibition about the history of Abu Dhabi, in the visitors’ center of the the Qasr Al Hosn Fort, the oldest building of Abu Dhabi. Through a combination of historical artefacts, Pepper’s Ghost illusions and a large animated model, the history of the fort and Abu Dhabi is shown, going back 450 years, from only a fort with watchtower to a large modern metropolis. Visitors are also offered an impression of the renovation plans for the fort area’s future, designed by Danish architects, CEBRA Architecture.
