Barker Langham developed 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 undertook an impressive content-identification and collation job and identified never-before-seen footage and images of Sheikh Zayed which gave insight into his character and personality.

The Founder’s Memorial officially opened to the public in April 2018.
