Dubai’s Mu­seum of the Fu­ture pro­gresses

Construction Week - - INTELLIGENCE -

The struc­ture of Dubai’s much-awaited Mu­seum of the Fu­ture build­ing has been com­pleted, ac­cord­ing to Dubai Fu­ture Foun­da­tion (DFF), a body set up to make the emi­rate a global cen­tre for cut­ting-edge tech­nolo­gies.

Set to open its doors in 2020, the mu­seum “em­bod­ies one of the pil­lars of the vi­sion of HH Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Rashid Al Mak­toum, Vice Pres­i­dent and Prime Min­is­ter of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai”, ac­cord­ing to a top of­fi­cial at DFF.

Lo­cated in Busi­ness Bay near the high-pro­file Emi­rates Tow­ers on Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road, Mu­seum of the Fu­ture will be a desti­na­tion for sci­en­tists, in­no­va­tors, and ex­perts in­ter­ested in shap­ing the fu­ture.

Bam In­ter­na­tional is work­ing on the project that was de­signed by ar­chi­tec­ture house Killa De­sign.

The mu­seum’s oval­shaped su­per­struc­ture fea­tures a com­plex steel and glass façade with an Ara­bic poem about in­no­va­tion, wo­ven into the ex­te­rior of the build­ing. The cal­lig­ra­phy is a ma­jor de­sign fea­ture of build­ing set be­come an icon of Dubai.
