As Abu Dhabi continues its mission to diversify its cultural offering, art galleries, institutions and museums play a significant role in its expansion. Unveiled earlier this year by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi and the city’s leading creator of experiences Miral, the upcoming art space — teamLab Phenomena Abu Dhabi — offers a new interactive art experience created by international art collective teamLab.

Located in the city’s Saadiyat Cultural District – which is already home to the Louvre Abu Dhabi and soon the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi — the venue is an additional innovative cultural development of the island. With its construction set to be completed in 2024, the 17,000sqm building will host an immersive, multi-sensory experience aiming to promote “infinite curiosity.”

Based on the Tokyo-based collective’s innovative concept of “Environmental Phenomena,” the immersive space has been designed by teamLab Architects. Both inwards and outwards, the in-house architects have designed a structure that wraps around the experience as opposed to forcibly compressing it inside.

Visiting the teamLab studios in Tokyo to experience the prototypes for himself, as shown in the video above, the Chairman of DCT Abu Dhabi, HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak says, “Sitting at the intersection of art, technology, nature and high-tech fantasy, teamLab Phenomena Abu Dhabi will offer a world of boundless wonder and creativity.” Explaining the impact of this institution on the emirate he continues, “Our leadership has always said impossible is just a concept. We’re not afraid of dreaming and pushing boundaries to better connect with each other. We are committed to creating cultural experiences and narrating our stories, similarities, and differences as we believe in the diversity of our artistic expressions.”

Offering a new take on art exhibitions, the space will showcase a range of artworks by teamLab through interactive installations. Looking to stimulate the imagination of visitors, the experience will evolve endlessly, making it unique to each person based on the concept of “Environmental Phenomena.” Speaking on the upcoming launch, Toshiyuki Inoko, founder of teamLab explains, “At teamLab Phenomena, visitors will be immersed into a world that organically changes and evolves through the participation and actions of the people in it, and it is precisely this physical experience that can expand our senses of value.”
