    The Grand Egyptian Museum is set to finally open its doors after a design and construction project which has taken more than 20 years to complete. Touted as the world's most anticipated museum – thanks to both its unique design and the treasures it will house – the attraction was first announced to the world in 2001.

    A design competition in 2002 received more than 1,500 entries, from which Heneghan Peng Architects were selected for the development in 2003. After a delayed start, ground was finally broken in 2005 and the building of the museum has taken nearly 15 years – with the COVID-19 pandemic adding further disruption to the process.

    Opening in November 2022, the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) will house, display, and preserve some of the world’s greatest ancient treasures – including King Tut’s entire treasure collection, which will be available to the public for the very first time.

    Architects draw up fanciful plans for a giant ring structure around Burj Khalifa in downtown Dubai

    It would stretch 1,800 feet above the ground and run to 1.8 miles in circumference between skyscrapers

    Inside the ring there would be a mini-city of residences, commercial space and even a green Skypark

    But the designers admit the mesmerising plans will never be built due to financial and practical obstacles

    Abu Dhabi developer Imkan Properties will launch new projects ahead of schedule this year amid strong demand for property in the capital.

    A subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Capital Group, Imkan said a “remarkable” sales performance contributed to the sell-out of Pixel on Reem Island, Nudra on Saadiyat Island and the first phase of AlJurf Gardens, its “Riviera” project on the coast between Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

    As a result, it will launch new projects ahead of schedule in the Makers District on Reem Island and AlJurf this year.

    The Cloud Center will be an arts, culture and conference space in Qinhuangdao, China opening next year.

    Chinese architecture studio MAD has revealed photos of its sculptural Cloud Center building in Qinhuangdao, China, which was designed for arts and culture community Aranya. Images of its construction show the 2,500-square-metre building's bulbous shape taking form, as well as the beginning of the process to clad its overhanging roof in white-stained glass.


    The cultural center, which will be located in the port city of Qinhuangdao, 160 miles east of Beijing, will house a grand hall, a gallery and a small theatre. Its design was informed by the "shape and lightweight appearance of clouds" and will sit in the middle of a landscape conceived by MAD as a "white stone garden."

Designed by world-acclaimed architect firm, Kengo Kuma and Associates, the luxurious two-basement, four-story, 92-room hotel will be located in the Miyagawa-cho district, an important geiko (geisha) and maiko (apprentice geisha) neighborhood and cultural treasure in Kyoto.


    Developed by NTT Urban Development Corporation, a comprehensive real estate company within the NTT Group, Capella Kyoto is the hospitality component of a development that cements it between Miyagawa-cho Kaburenjo, an opera house that showcases famous female geiko and maiko dances such as the Kyo-Odori, and Miyagawa Maiko Performance School.
