The construction of the Museum of the Future
It was a huge challenge to be able to realize this project in reality. This is mainly due to the round shape of the building, outside the concrete column inside, there is virtually no justice to the museum. It was therefore quite a job for the architectural firm Killa Design to be able to make the 3D drawings.
The frame of the museum consists of more than 1,000 different steel elements that form the entire skeleton of the building.
On the outside, the Museum of the Future is completely covered with steel panels where Arabic texts are cut out. These calligraphic texts serve as a framework and therefore light source for the building. The panels are also delivered ready-made in advance. This means that in every panel the structure, the windows, the insulation and the waterproofing are applied in advance. This is a method of facade cladding that has never been used before.
What to see in the Museum of the Future
The Museum of the Future will serve as an international hub for important inventions of the future. This way you will not be able to find the latest high-tech gadgets, but rather the bigger challenges for the future of the planet.
