The installation of the final component in the unique and innovative façade of the Museum of the Future in Dubai was witnessed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The Museum of the Future, along with the Emirates Towers, the Dubai International Financial Center and the Dubai World Trade Center, represents an innovation-driven area that will drive sustainability and advance the development process, Sheikh Mohammed said, noting that the museum has already gained global fame even before its opening thanks to its unique design.
Referring to the Museum of the Future as a global monument of urban excellence and a quintessential Emirati contribution to delivering a brighter future, he said: "A universal architectural icon, the Museum of the Future combines between our authentic Arab culture and far-reaching ambitions. It is a global engineering icon, but speaks the Arabic language."
The landmark embodies the UAE's unique urban achievements and adds to Dubai's distinguished track record of architectural masterpieces.
"The Museum of the Future represents a global architectural and engineering icon that will be harnessed to build human miracles capable of using the museum to shape a better future," Sheikh Mohammed said.
"We are not after architectural wonders, but we rather seek to unleash human potential to create a better future that abounds in miracles and testifies to the remarkable achievements made by the UAE. Dubai will continue to deliver architectural masterpieces as the world continues to be in progress for those who know exactly what they want," he added.
The Museum, which is encased in stainless steel adorned with Arabic calligraphy, will on completion represent a showplace for a new era - a center of creativity and hope where the visitor can see, touch and shape the country's shared future. Combining elements of exhibition, immersive theater and themed attraction, the Museum of the Future invites its visitors to look beyond the present and take their place within possible worlds to come.
