The world’s most beautiful building opens today in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.
I have been seeing this building shaping up for the past few years. In my infinite views of this remarkable architectural marvel proudly beaming over Dubai’s arterial Sheikh Zayed Road and neighboured by the classy and iconic Emirates Towers and World Trade centre in the vicinity, I always questioned myself, “How did they build this pillarless masterpiece- an oval shaped structure with a big void in the middle?
But then, this is Dubai. Anything and everything spectacular is possible here! As they say,
“You name it,
Dubai has it,
even if it doesn’t,
its already building it!“
So here it is! The due day has arrived and the excitement is palpable as Dubai is all set to open its doors to the most beautiful building on the earth which invites guests to embark on an experiential journey to the future. The most eagerly-anticipated Museum of the Future brings together world’s most innovative and creative minds to accelerate sustainable development.
Dubai’s Museum of the Future will open its doors today, the 22 February 2022, a date as unique as the masterpiece itself, in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
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 Museum of Future 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.
“The Museum’s exhibitions will fuel the passion of present and future generations, and spark their intellectual curiosity for science, technology and the knowledge that will help humanity to thrive and prosper in the decades ahead.” His Excellency added: “The Museum will create a global platform for pioneers, innovators and critical thinkers to exchange ideas, concepts and visions to accelerate sustainable socioeconomic development and shape a fair future that works for everyone. His Excellency announced that the Museum of the Future will host a series of international conversations and talks immediately after its inauguration.
