Back to the Future Art Museum in Dubai

It is hard to imagine Dubai is in a recession when you look at this emerging project.

This image (pictured) shows the futuristic building plans for the Museum of Middle East Modern Art to be located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The project is being led by the UN Studio, an architecture company in the Netherlands.

Like many other projects in Dubai, this cultural building is defining new modern design ideas in a city that is investing in its future.

The museum will be located in Culture Village near the banks of Dubai Creek (Khor Dubai). With the blossoming wealth of the region one can only hope that its collection will rival that of other modern art museums around the world.
