Having designed the Edge of Government exhibition at the World Government Summit in Dubai this year with EngageWorks, we had the opportunity to visit ‘The Museum of the Future’ – a unique initiative by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum that explores the future of science, technology and innovation. This year’s theme was ‘Reimagining Climate Change’.

 The assumption of an apocalyptic era by 2050 sets the scene for Dubai as a world leader in creating new technologies that would save humanityThe exhibition showcased three imaginative ideas for the effects of food shortages, water scarcity and cities destruction.

Water is seen as one of the biggest challenge of the future for both drinking and farming. An immersive 360 video gave us a glimpse into a Bio-Desalination Plant designed for Dubai 2050. This future scenario combines the genes of jellyfish and mangrove roots to provide a local means of filtering saltwater into clean drinking water through natural processes. For those who are fans of Disney- Atlantis does exist and you might live there one day!

With the increasing population and harsh weather conditions, food is the other issue that gets tackled. Autofarm is an automated food production factory that grows fresh food in your home, office, or neighbourhood. These 100% programmable and robotic farms are tailored to your needs and preferences. The farms advanced software can even create personalised diets for everyone’s needs in your entire building. The bioengineered food uses 99% less water and is 100 times healthier and more nutritious.

And finally, cities will be destroyed and relocated due to rising sea-levels and other natural disasters so “Welcome to the City Kit sales Centre”: a self-building infrastructure solution that uses biotechnology and robotics to grow generative, self-sufficient cities. An interactive display allowed visitors to test the Kit’s advantages which provides material to grow 100% self-sufficient cities in a matter of weeks. It combines local resources like sand and bacteria to produce its own building materials, grow its own roads, and build its own buildings.

It even promises the reconstruction of heritage buildings recreating neighbourhoods. It’s nice to think that we could rebuild the Sagrada Familia in a few weeks in case it falls down.

The last room gave us the opportunity to vote for the solution that we would prioritize for further development. Since all this is happening in less than 35 years get ready for the apocalypse and enjoy each day to the fullest!
