Future is always uncertain. But each of us believe the things get better than where we are. Can you imagine the world after 50 years from today? If yes, let’s have a walkthrough and see how far your guess is correct, if no, still let’s go through and see how it would be? Today Zelus365 are going to help you with that amazing time travelling journey. “The Museum of the Future” Dubai. This museum takes us on a journey to the year 2071.
MOTF is an inspirational museum that filled with modern futuristic science, technology, and spirituality. The museum is illustrated and offer the audience a really realistic picture of what the future might be like. It is the living museum with constantly changing contents and exhibits and the first museum of its kind. It has the very unique structure and it is the most complex building ever built in the earth. MOTF is already classified as the most architecturally creative building in the world too. It looks something like a spacecraft dropped into the Dubai city’s financial district.
MOTF is a seven-story, pillarless building that is resting on a lawn-like green hill, with silver ring shaped structure with a hollow at its center. Because of its unique round shape, there is no any sharp corners in this building. This world’s most magnificent creation inspired by the human eye. “The museum of the future is the eye that sees tomorrow”.
The museum has three main parts. The green mount, the building and the void. The green hill like mound represents the earth. The elliptical-shaped building represents humanity. The void represents the unknown future that lies ahead.
This museum facade is made out of stainless steel and covered with Arabic calligraphy quotes. This is the only building in the world with a surface entirely covered in calligraphy art or a language. The Arabic calligraphy that covers the building functions as windows and as well as decoration. These windows allow natural daylight to seep into the column-free interior.
The Arabic calligraphy decorating the gleaming silver oval surface is based on three quotes from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He is Ruler of Dubai and Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE. These inspiring poetics are his visions of the future and reflect the museum’s aim. The words written on the museum can roughly translate to as follows.
1-We may not live for hundreds of years, but the products of our creativity can leave a legacy long after we are gone
2- The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it. It isn’t something you await but rather create.
3- Innovation is not an intellectual luxury. It is a secret behind the evolution and rejuvenation of nations and people.
The Future 2071 opens when you walk through the colossal revolving doors to the enormous lobby on the ground floor, the heart of the Museum. This is the place where you can purchase tickets and tours begin. When you enter the museum, gigantic animal aerobes floating in the massive atrium and welcome you. A silver manta ray, a swimming silver penguin and a modern jellyfish bring you a moment of pure magic. Here you can see the spiral staircase in the lobby, the world’s tallest double helix stair which allows visitors to access several floors of exhibits. There is also a cafe that serves coffee made by robot barista and a gift shop with souvenirs.
After you explored the lobby, you can step into the sophisticated drop pod and that will take you straight to the fifth floor. The Museum of the Future journey to 2071 starts at Level 5 down to Level 1.
