With the grandest World Expo ever and the most mega, avant-garde projects, getting bored here seems impossible! And now, Dubai offers you the chance to travel to the future. Even before its release, The Museum of the Future has received widespread acclaim for its breathtaking design, which is also regarded as one of the most difficult projects ever undertaken! Let us get ready for a virtual trip around this amazing structure.
The Purpose Behind this Futuristic Project
The museum’s motto is “see the future, create the future.” The one-of-a-kind project is the brainchild of DFF (Dubai Future Foundation), a government foundation established to shape the future of the region’s major sectors and led by the UAE’s Vice President and Ruler, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Surprisingly, the Museum of Future was first introduced in 2014 as a series of themed temporary exhibitions at the World Government Summit in Dubai. Since then, it has created and displayed a number of dynamic themes and immersive technologies with multi-sensory experiences in a variety of industries, including climate change, food safety, and healthcare.
According to HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the new permanent museum will serve as an incubator for real ideas and ground-breaking inventions. It is now the largest platform of its kind for discovering future trends and developing futuristic opportunities. In a nutshell, a visit to this most beautiful museum on earth will allow the visitor to see where Dubai wants to go in the future.
The Structure of the Most Beautiful Building on Earth
Created by Killa Design, this museum has a torus shape. It looks like a massive eye with its oval silver sparkling ring shape. This massive eye is watching over the city’s stunning landmarks! It is no wonder that the design has won several awards or that it won all points to be rated as a LEED-certified structure!
To dive deeper into the structure, the museum is divided into three parts. Each of these three parts represents a different message:
- The green hill upon which the Museum is placed is representative of the earth.
- The Uber-style building is representative of mankind’s ability to blend with the earth surrounding him and its forever-changing conditions. The magical Arabic calligraphy inscribed on this structure is not there to take your breath away but also to symbolize man’s love for art and creativity. It is worth mentioning here, that the calligraphy was created by Mattar bin Lahej, a well-known Emirati artist. More interestingly, these inspirational Arabic words engraved there are taken from poems written by HH Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
- The void in the middle is a reference to a future that holds endless innovative ideas.
