Museum of the Future, Dubai

Museum of the Future, planned for a corner lot in Dubai’s central financial district next to the Emirates Towers, is said to become “an incubator for ideas and real designs, a driver for innovation and a global destination for inventors and entrepreneurs.” The primary inspiration of the Museum of the Future was to create a form that represents the client’s vision of the future, where the solid element of the building with its exhibition floors represents our understanding of the “future” as we know it today and for the next 5 to 10 years. In contrast, the ‘void’ represents what we do not yet know.









The Museum of the Future is comprised of three main parts: the green hill, the building and the void. The green hill represents the earth, with solidity, permanence, and rootedness in place, time and history. The glimmering, futuristic upper building represents mankind, with all of its strength, artistry and ability to create in harmony with its surroundings. Lastly, the elliptical void within the upper structure represents innovation. This is done primarily by creating an empty space showing the unwritten future into which humanity and the world can symbolically look towards.









The 78-meter-high building, with an area of 17,000 m2, accommodates 6 exhibitions and 1 administration floor above a 3-story podium, auditorium, retail, parking, and services. The plan is to change out all the content of the museum every six months, ensuring that they are always looking 10 years into the future. The Museum of the Future is under construction and is scheduled to open in 2020.
