Celebrating the history and heritage of Abu Dhabi's oldest building
Mather & Co was appointed designer of the Qasr al Hosn Exhibition celebrating the history of the world famous ‘white fort’ in the centre of Abu Dhabi. The new exhibition was launched at the annual Qasr al Hosn festival in February 2015 and will continue as a permanent feature in the city.
The exhibition features seven gallery stories chronicling the history of Qasr al Hosn from the development of the very first watch tower to the construction of the fort and evolution into the palace in Abu Dhabi today. Fascinating oral testimonies and historic photographs bring this important monument to life. Contemporary Emirati voices reflect on Abu Dhabi’s transformation and Qasr al Hosn’s key role as a vibrant symbol of Emirati heritage, culture and tradition. Stunning audio-visuals and video projections as well as state-of-the-art touchscreen interactive displays and models bring the story to life.
