In the tweet, the Ruler of Dubai stated, ‘Brothers and sisters, the most beautiful building on earth (and in the Emirates) will launch to the world on 02/22/2022.’
Sheikh Mohammed added that 2022 will be an exceptional year for the United Arab Emirates.
Museum of the Future, one of Dubai’s most ambitious and exciting projects reached its milestone back in October 2020. The ceremony saw Sheikh Mohammed sign the last piece of the panel before it was placed on the structure thus completing the eye-catching facade.
After the facade was completed, work has been quietly taking place on the inside of the museum and now finally, after nearly a year and a half of eagerly waiting, we can finally see what it looks like on the inside.
The Museum of the Future has already been named one of the world’s 14 most beautiful museums just last year, and honestly, no one is surprised.
The list was put out by National Geographic magazine. The jaw-dropping structure is a unique design shaped like an eye with a hollowed-out middle and covers an area of 30,000 square metres and is 7-stories standing at 77m high.
The Museum of the Future will explore the future of science, technology and innovation and Sheikh Mohammed had previously said that it will be ‘an incubator for ideas, a driver for innovation, and a destination for inventors and entrepreneurs from around the world’.
The beautiful calligraphy on the facade of the structure is a quote about the future from Sheikh Mohammed.
It reads ‘We may not live for hundreds of years, but the products of our creativity can leave a legacy long after we are gone.’ and ‘The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it… The future does not wait. The future can be designed and built today.’
We can’t wait to see what’s inside.
