Dubai is undoubtedly at the forefront of mega-projects when the topic is discussed. The city has been transformed into an international country with global standards through its great projects, and tourists come from around the globe to visit it. With multibillion-dollar construction projects underway, it will remain a top universal destination for years.

It is not uncommon for the UAE to be home to some stunning and mind-boggling architectural projects. It is no secret that there have been amazing arrivals in Dubai in the last few years, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Ain Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Library, Dubai Frame, and Expo 2020. However, there is still plenty to come. Before opening the Museum of the Future this week, here are all the UAE-made projects we can expect.

 Over the past decade, Dubai has grown from a desert city into a world-class metropolis whose architecture is credited with other architectural marvels, including the iconic Burj Al Arab and the sky-piercing Burj Khalifa. In Dubai, some high-profile projects are developing and don't seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Natural History Museum


An Abu Dhabi Natural History Museum is coming to Saadiyat Island in 2025. There are Natural History Museums across the globe in cities with a strong sense of cultural awareness. Their exhibits tend to chart biological and geological evolution.

They are the Yin of Dubai's recently opened Museum of the Future. It is not uncommon for natural history museums to display full-skeletal replicas of extinct creatures, such as the famous Dippy model on view at the London Museum.

Al Reem Mall


As the World's First Omnichannel Mall, Reem Mall claims to be a landmark. It's hard to understand what exactly that means. Still, based on our understanding, the mall will offer a hybrid retail approach, where digital shopping will be offered in addition to conventional shopping.

Your shopping habits can be used as data to send you tailored promotions. Having created the world's first fully digitally enabled mall, supported by an integrated logistics hub, Milat Sayra Berirmen, Digital Experience Manager for Reem Mall, describes this move as part of a revolutionary transformation.

Guggenheim Abu Dhabi


Frank Gehry's design for the Guggenheim Museum will adorn the Saadiyat Cultural District skyline once it's finished. As Guggenheim's spirit embodies the building plans for the building, the design is contemporary, unconventional, but uniquely beautiful. A building that nods to its host nation in its funnel-shaped protrusions occupying sections of the exterior. These are inspired by the historical wind towers of the region. As on the outside, so on the inside.

 A collection of contemporary and modern art will be on display at the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, including works by some of the most important creatives of the 20th and 21st centuries. Over 13,000 square meters of exhibition space will be provided by four levels of galleries surrounded by glass bridges surrounding the central atrium. The Guggenheim Abu Dhabi will open in 2025, as confirmed last year.
