The Museum Aims To Look At Future Developments:
Remember the TV series Star Trek? Why has it gained so much popularity? Because this fictional series portrayed a hopeful future for human civilization, people who were dedicated to science and exploration. “Museum Of The Future” in a similar manner screams a futuristic approach that will give hope to its people. A platform where innovation and exploration will be enabled and solutions will be created about issues that will directly impact the future: climate change, education, transportation, healthcare, food security, and outer space, with emphasis on leveraging artificial intelligence.

Do you know what is written in Arabic? Some of Sheikh Mohammed’s most iconic quotes, among which are: “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.”
The Hidden Meaning Behind The Structure Of The Museum:
The unconventional torus-shaped “Museum Of The Future” is not only sophisticated, but it is also futuristic and has a quite deep meaning behind its design. Local architectural firm Killa Design, which won the design competition for the museum in 2015, came up with the shape. According to the architect, the solid part of the structure represents the knowledge that we have today. The void represents all that we do not yet know in other words, the future.
The Design Has Taken Inspiration From Feng Shui:
Taking a torus shape of a silver oval with an open center the design and build of this museum have been recorded to be the world’s most complex building. A round shape represents fertile fields of earth and limitless imagination of the sky in feng shui and the only horizontal surfaces in the entire building are the floors, everything else is oval or circular.
A Dynamic Mix of Experiences For Everyone
Four floors of expansive exhibitions will focus on the possible futures of outer space resource development, ecosystems and bioengineering, and health, wellness, and spirituality. Another floor will be dedicated to showcasing near future technologies which will transform our world by addressing challenges in areas such as health, water, food, transportation, and energy. The final floor will give children their own world to explore, and challenges to complete, on their way to becoming “future heroes”.
In short, The Museum of the Future combines elements of the exhibition, immersive theatre, and themed attraction, inviting you to look beyond the present to the possible.
