The Dubai Museum Of The Future aims to be a catalyst for pioneering concepts and ideas, inspiring those who see and visit the building to innovate, create and discover.
The core concept of the building is to create a form that represents the vision of the future – dynamic and innovative.
The torus shape of the building captures the perpetual energy of the city.
The exterior of the Dubai building is covered with windows that form a poem by Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed about his vision for the city’s future, written in Arabic calligraphy.
According to the Museum, ‘it is home for optimistic imagination, committed to a more sustainable future for all. Our goal is to inspire and empower people to positively shape humanity’s next chapter.”
The building is an architectural and engineering marvel. It confidently straddles the past and the future, applying advanced technology to traditional art forms. The building ‘speaks Arabic’: its facade is a canvas for the poetry of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum rendered in the calligraphy of Mattar bin Lahej.
The building’s form is futuristic: it opens a new path away from the highrise towers that dominate skylines everywhere. Its form is symbolic: The circular building represents humanity; the green mound it sits atop represents the earth; the void represents the unknown future.
The Museum builds on the visionary culture that has transformed the UAE into one of the world’s most advanced nations in less than 50 years. We are a showcase for the spirit of courage, optimism and innovation that propels Dubai forward.
Like our home city, the Museum is a place of tolerance, inviting varied cultural, philosophical, social and spiritual outlooks. Our imagined futures are rooted in the values of the UAE and the Arab world.
