External façade of muse­um is in form of folded manu­script supported internally by gold­en columns, representing fountain pens symbolising seven Emir­ates.

I believe these are the features to which the article refers.

“The dramatic entrance pavilion rests lightly upon a reflecting pool and plaza, its undulating parabolic curves representing the parchment upon which the unification agreement was written and its tapering golden columns representing the pens with which the document was signed. (ITP Images)
