The Museum of the Future exhibits state-of-the-art gadgets, futuristic artwork, and forward-thinking concepts. Located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates’s Financial District, it is propped up by a verdant hill, a towering building, and nothing at all.
On February 22, 2022, the government of the United Arab Emirates officially dedicated the museum.
Industry professionals in design and construction Seduce people.
Killa Design and Buro Happold were responsible for the design and engineering of the Museum of the Future. Using a cutting-edge robot-assisted manufacturing method, 1,024 separate components were used to construct the 17,600 square metre stainless steel front of the Museum of the Future. It rises 77 metres (225 feet) into the air and covers 30,548 square feet of space.
Dubai ruler and UAE vice president Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said on March 4, 2015, that the plans to build the Museum of the Future were revealed during the February 2015 Government Summit.
On February 7, 2016, as part of the World Government Summit, Mohammed bin Rashid opened the Museum of the Future. On April 24 of this year, Mohammed bin Rashid honored the Dubai Future Foundation with a special award. Museum of the Future is now a department of Dubai Future Foundation. On February 10, 2017, and again on February 9, 2018, the Museum of the Future opened its doors in Madinat Jumeirah for the duration of the World Government Summit.
The doors of the museum opened to the public for the first time on February 22, 2022, at 7 p.m. There was an official opening ceremony, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai’s Ruler, along with Dubai’s Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and Dubai’s Ruler Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed, were all there.
Insight into the Big Picture and Central Concept
By archiving ideas and providing a hub that brings together scholars, designers, innovators, and financiers, the Museum of the Future aspires to inspire solutions to the problems that will face cities in the future.
The Museum will include a number of innovation centres dedicated to several sectors, including the energy sector, the transportation sector, smart cities, the health sector, and the educational sector. It will also aid in funding and evaluating creative inventions in combination with academic institutions and research facilities.
Building Design Plan
For environmental friendliness, the structure is striving for the Platinum level of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design system. The whole building’s front is made up of windows, and within each one is a poem the ruler of Dubai wrote in Arabic concerning the future of the emirate.
Innovation is critical for societal development, reviving life, and expanding humankind. Emirati cartoonist Matar Bin Lahej designed the Arabic calligraphy that appears on the facade of the Dubai Museum of the Future.
The torus-shaped shell atop the structure is made out of 1,024 fire-retardant composite panels, each of which has a different 3D shape that represents an Arabic letter.
Cutting-edge parametric design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) approaches were developed via collaboration between Killa Design and Buro Happold, such as a growth algorithm that employs digital means to enlarge the current steel structure inside the building. There are seven floors in all, and each one has special exhibits. The advancement of extraterrestrial resources and habitats, biotechnology, and health are all covered extensively across three levels of coverage. The lower level is a child-friendly area. Dane Engineering Works was one of the businesses that contributed to the project’s steel structure.
The Museum’s passive solar design, low-energy and low-water technological solutions, and integrated renewable options make it an exemplary low-carbon building. The layout of a green building takes into account agricultural and horticultural practises. It gives great thought to its recommendations for countering climate change.
Grassy, Verdant, and Green Landscapes
You have to climb a succession of terraced hills, some of which have just little windows and passages cut into the wall, to reach the main building. The goal of this project was to completely cover the bank with flora, and sea purslane was chosen for this purpose. The building’s greenroof, green walls, and sustainable landscapes collaborate to care for the building’s living green infrastructure, the nearby low-impact development, and the building’s renewable energy sources. There is some speculation that green roofs may assist reduce the building’s internal carbon footprint in addition to its external one.
An ancient Chinese proverb, “The ancestors plant the trees, and the generations enjoy the shade,” is displayed in lavender-green neon inside Dubai’s Museum of the Future, one of the city’s newest museums.
To paraphrase the Sheikh: “The future accord to those who can foresee it, create it, and execute it.” If the Museum keeps investigating and reacting to this idea via other lenses and methods in upcoming exhibits, it may be able to help build the much-needed future.
