A unique experience that combines science, technology but also the environment across a wide range of topics in an immersive setting that engages all five senses of visitors. That promise, according to the magazine Arch Daily A new Museum of the Future opens in Dubai, aiming to “change perceptions about the future as we know it”. He wanted to show the world what it would look like in 50 years.
The Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Muhammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, called the museum “the most beautiful building on Earth” and was considered by the magazine to be “one of the most complex structures in the world, representing a return to Arab excellence in the development of science.” and mathematics.
The building sits on a grassy hill right on the city’s main highway Sheikh Zayed Road – a seven-minute drive from the world’s largest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa. It has the shape of an asymmetrical torus, which is essentially a three-dimensional elongated ring, and is entirely lined with steel and glass with the Arabic coat of arms, which together form a poem by the Emir of Dubai about the state’s futuristic ambitions. They also function as windows made of over a thousand aluminum composite panels.
Museum with own solar power plant
The total area of the building is 30,548 square meters and rises to a height of 77 meters. The lighting is managed by a 4,000 megawatt solar power plant. The local innovation center built a special and exclusive museum to drive it god. From the outside, the outline of the characters on the building’s facade is illuminated overnight and the entire interior of the building glows, wherein the poem also repeats on all the walls and ceilings, but this time the whole lettering shines, not just the contours.
The Future Museum in Dubai consists of seven floors, each dedicated to a different exhibition with a different theme. On the first three floors, visitors can see the future of mankind in the field of space conquest, advanced ecological solutions to today’s problems, or how life will become “ordinary”. The next three floors contain technological innovations and fiction from healthcare, nutrition, and transportation. Upstairs for kids.
Famous brands will also be exhibited there
Although some of the objects on display are essentially digital models or animations, many of them must be directly contracted products world brand and institutions, which will thus present their own innovations or concepts at the exhibition, in all of these areas, including space. The museum has previously been designated as partner companies such as HTC, Huawei, DigiComm, Holotronica, MetaVRse, SPACES or Axeon360. That is, companies from Asia, such as the United States, United Kingdom or France.
The author of the design of the building is the architect Shaun Killa, who has designed, for example, a pair of the Aykon Twin Towers or the so-called Future Officewhich is supposed to be the first fully functional and permanently used office created on a 3D printer since 2016.
The United Arab Emirates also uses 3D printing technology to produce key pieces for the Museum of the Future. The whole construction is published by the magazine Global Construction to $500 million or about 10.8 billion crowns.
“Green Hill represents the earth with its strength, stability and roots in place, time and history,” explains Killova design agency.
“Similarly, the luminous and futuristic superstructure represents humanity in all its power, art, and ability to create harmony with its environment.” And finally, the elliptical void within the superstructure represents innovation. It achieves this primarily by creating an empty space that denotes an indescribable future where humanity and the world can be seen symbolically,” added Killa Design.
