The Founder's Memorial
A Tribute to the UAE’s Founder
Barker Langham have been working with the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation to develop the Visitor Experience for The Founder’s Memorial - a new permanent national monument in Abu Dhabi which commemorates and celebrates the life and legacy of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
Our interpretive approach focused on telling a personal story of Sheikh Zayed the man; the qualities that defined his character, his interests and pastimes; the causes he championed; and the beliefs he held dear. Barker Langham worked closely with the Foundation throughout the process, undertaking an impressive content-identification and collation job and identifying never-before-seen footage and images of Sheikh Zayed which give insight into his character and personality.
The Founder’s Memorial officially opened to the public in April 2018.
