The year 2016 was a groundbreaking time for architectural structures and this year will see to its completion. From the United Arab Emirates to London, nothing starts 2017 like the construction of beautifully designed, out of this world museums and buildings.

Louvre Abu Dhabi. Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel sees to the museum design that hopes to 'mirror a protected territory that belongs to the Arab world and this geography.' Two-thirds of the museum will be covered by a dome which is a symbolic feature of Arabian architecture that likens to a mosque or mausoleum.

LEGO House, Billund. What's better than a LEGO store? A LEGO House. Bjarke Ingels Group took care of its architectural designs with the leading architect saying that formation will look like "a cloud of interlocking LEGO bricks." LEGO House will open to the public sometime in the third or fourth quarter of 2017. It will compromise of a café, LEGO shop, exhibits and more.

Napoli-Afragola High-Speed Train Station, Naples. The cobra-like steel structure plans o interlink Naples to Rome. London bases architect, Zaha Hadid, leads the design and hopes that it would be more than just a train station. The Napoli-Afragola will also house public spaces, cafes, promenades and more. It started in 2003 and hopes to open by the end of the year or by 2018.

King Abdulaziz Center For World Culture. An initiative of the Saudi Aramco Oil Company to promote cultural development in Saudi Arabia, it will house a number of facilities like an auditorium, cinema, library, exhibition hall, museum, and archive. Its smooth steel façade brushes against the desert sands. Snøhetta was chosen to design the building and has stated that the museum will cater to the "930-seat auditorium hosting opera and classical music concerts as well as speeches" and a stock of 200,000 books.

Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. It will be the biggest museum to open in Africa with the goal of "to collect, preserve, research, and exhibit cutting edge contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora, to develop supporting educational and enrichment programs for all, to encourage intercultural understanding and guarantee access for all." It is the first museum in the continent to render contemporary art. It is slated to open on September 23, 2017.
