The progress in Dubai is a daily-made category. It is the largest construction site in the world, with new buildings springing up constantly, growing into the sky and "raising history" as mentioned on numeroud billboards all around and as always, it never seizes to amaze us.
Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, presented his vision on Twitter for the next architectural wonder of Dubai - The Museum of the Future. As the name suggests, the building will be brave and imaginative, pushing the boundaries of architecture and design.
The $136 million worth attraction is scheduled for opening in 2017 and will be the jewel of high-tech advancement. The massive structure will be in the shape of a rugby ball, with a hole in the steel that will concentrate on holographic billboards, and will have exhibitions in different areas of innovation - from education to health care. If that isn't enough, large components of the building will be 3D printed.
The Museum is planned to be managed by a foundation headed by the leader of the UAE, with the Board of Trustees involving monumental national figures, and with Mohammed Abdullah Al Gergawi, the Minister of Cabinet Affairs, as the Vice President.
The motto of the object is "see the future, create the future." It seeks to unite inventors, designers, architects, and researchers to cooperate in a variety of technologies, including automotive, robotics, genetics, and others. The Museum of the Future is the largest in a surge of world-class projects in this emirate and is set to stand in the Emirates Towers area, near Sheikh Zayed road. The architect for this amazing contraption is no other than Shaun Killa, who was involved in the Burj Al Arab project, receiving praise and recognition on his various projects in Atkins, the company he joined in 1998.
Magnificent on the outside, beautiful on the inside, the Museum of the Future is definitely going to make its mark on all the top "must-see in Dubai" once completed.
