Oval shaped museum of future and book shaped mohammand bin rashid library now taking shape in dubai.
The museum of the future coming in front of emirates towers on shaikh zayed road,is oval shaped with oval open space in its centre.at the moment the metal frame can be seen with interconnected parts taking on oval design.will be completed in 2019.the landmark will have a shiny smooth exterior with arabic writing on it.unlike other museums,it will not be home to relice of the past,but rather as its name suggest an incubator of innovation of future technologies and the life style changed by them may look like.
Meanwhile, motorists driving down Al khail Road near Business Bay,on the jaddaf side can now clearly see a book shaped structure being built.the unique site is the under construction mohammad bin rashid library a project of dubai municipality.though it looks like a thick book opened from the middle,it is actually meant to represent a rehl the arabic word for a traditional lectern,a bookstand or book rest.the rehl carries books in general but more specifically the quran.
in the same way a library carries and preserves the cultural treasures of a nation in the form of literature, periodicals and audiovisual media.in this respect the architectural concept of the library is based symbolically on the lectern,the rehl and translates this into a modern 21st century vocubulary.
True to dubai vision besides paper books there will be millions of audiovisual materials and ebooks in the library sheduled to open later this year.
