BuroHappold Engineering is the lead consultant for the project, having carried out full engineering design since project conception.
HH Sheikh Mohammed said WAM that the project is a global monument of urban excellence and a quintessential Emirati contribution to delivering a brighter future.
“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,” His Highness said.
“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.
“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.”
Located the Emirates Towers area near Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, the 30,000-square-meter and 77 meter-high iconic building has an instantly recognisable shape, epitomised by its futuristic stainless steel façade with illuminated glazed Arabic calligraphy. Seven floors of exhibition space will showcase innovative and futuristic concepts, services, and products for the future of cities.
