Young Emirati inventor Adeeb Al Blooshi toured Saadiyat Island on a visit to the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s construction site and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi’s inaugural exhibition, Seeing Through Light.
As part of the tour, 10-year-old Adeeb saw the latest construction milestones for the Louvre, such as its dome resting atop the museum’s four permanent piers.
Earlier this year, the young scientist went on a world tour to help him build on his previous inventions, which include a prosthetic limb for his father and a housework robot for his mother. The tour was organised by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai.
Because of his work he was named by CNN as among the world’s most impressive young medical pioneers.
The boy and his father were greeted by Ali Al Mansoori, chairman of the Tourism Development Investment Company, the host, as well as the company’s senior representatives.
“The museum will not only be a leading institution of arts and culture, but we hope a place that inspires people to explore beyond any limits they thought existed. Adeeb has already shown this potential through his remarkable inventions, and we wish him continued success for the future,” Mr Al Mansoori said.
Adeeb said he was impressed at the development of Saadiyat Island and the Louvre Abu Dhabi. He also said that he adored the island’s transformation into the cultural milestone it is set to become.
