The Guggenheim Museum will be located on the northeast tip of the island of Saadiyat, adjacent to Abu Dhabi City. At the heart of the building is a central courtyard which serves as the primary orientation space. The courtyard is surrounded by a series of galleries, including 12 indoor/outdoor sculpture galleries, or cones. The cones are large exhibition spaces, inspired by the traditional wind towers throughout the region.

Michael led a team in developing and documenting interior spaces as a member of the Gehry Partners project team.
