FILE - In this Tuesday, April 16, 2013 file photo, a model of the future Abu Dhabi branch of the Louvre museum by French architect Jean Nouvel is on display as part of a sample collection at the museum in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Sunshine and starlight will dance over visitors to the Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum when it opens in November 2017, filtering through an airy dome with an earthly weight of 7,500 tons - 200 tons more than the iron structure of the Eiffel Tower. Designed by renowned French architect Jean Nouvel, the museum, which sits half in the water, half on terra firma and was built to resemble an Arab village.  (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili, File)
