As the iconic structure was completed this weekend, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, shared images and videos of the completion of the project on his Twitter feed. The stunning landmark was also lit up after last piece was finally placed. 

By not only adding to the city’s aesthetic, "The museum will explore the future trends and opportunities in science, technology and innovation. By making Dubai a testbed for emerging technologies, our aim is not merely to build another architectural marvel, but to build the foundation of tomorrow.” as said by HH Sheikh Mohammed 

The shape also indicated structural intricacy with a 78-metre high museum frame that sits on 30,000 square meters of land and features reflecting pools, green space, a bike path and recreational use area. For convenience the museum will be connected by an elevated walkway to the Metro station along with a bridge linking it to the Emirates Towers.

This undeniably remarkable incubation for innovation and design in Dubai will not only add to the charm of the region but also act as a global ground for innovation, sustainability and development.
