Museum of the Future Dubai

Those who have already seen its image or glimpse into its construction already know that its unique architecture is one of its greatest highlights. It has been designed by Killa Design and is especially impressive for its torus shape which is more like an oval silver sparkling ring with a huge open center. In other words, the structure is akin to a giant eye that majestically sits atop the city and watches over this ever-dynamic city’s stunning landmarks and achievements.

Rightly so, the design has already grabbed prestigious awards and even won all points to be rated as a LEED-certified structure. The museum includes three main parts: the green hill, the structure, and is an open or void part. Beyond its architectural excellence and intricacy, each of these elements is backed by an impactful theme.

While the lush green hill (upon which the structure is placed) symbolizes the earth, the uber-stylish building depicts mankind’s extraordinary ingenuity and capability to blend in with its surroundings. Add to this beautiful Arabic calligraphy inscribed on to its exteriors, which represents mankind’s love for art and creativity. When it comes to the void or empty space, it denotes the endless imagination and innovation that the future holds.

One of its major features is the Arabic calligraphy (with more than 700 words) engraved on its exteriors. It is designed by the renowned Emirati artist, Mattar bin Lahej. And what’s more remarkable is that these inspiring Arabic words are taken from the poems penned down by HH Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
