Dubai's 'Museum of the Future', an architectural marvel with a first-of-its-kind of concept and design, was unveiled on February 22. Promoted as "the most beautiful building on earth", the museum is 77-metre tall and spreads across 33,000 square metres.

Unlike traditional museums that dive into the past, this promises to take the visitors on a journey to "2071" -- the year that will mark the centenary of the founding of the United Arab Emirates.

In an email conversation with Moneycontrol, architect Shaun Killa of Killa Design and Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) chief executive officer Khalfan Behloul share what makes the museum unique, stimulating, and futuristic, as well as the vision behind its creation and the challenges in its execution.
