Dubai’s Museum of the Future has opened its doors to the world on Tuesday, 22nd February 2022, in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, alongside senior government officials.
Nine years in the making, the Museum of the Future is already recognized as the most beautiful building on earth. The 77-ft modern architectural marvel, which tells the narrative of the future through a series of interactive exhibitions, invites people to experience the technologies and trends that will shape the future of humanity.
Spanning an area of 30,000 square metres, the pillarless structure also represents a novel global intellectual centre. It’s a “living” laboratory designed to foster a spirit of collaborative innovation among the Arab world’s leading scientists to inspire new out-of-the-box solutions to tomorrow’s greatest challenges and spur a new era of scientific discovery in the region and beyond.
Shaun Killa, head of architecture firm Killa Design, says the technical demands of the museum made this “the most ambitious” project he has worked on. The firm used sophisticated modeling tools to plan the unique, curved structure, composed of thousands of interlocking steel triangles. They used computer-controlled machining tools to cut more than 1,000 molds that support the fiberglass and stainless steel system on the facade.
