Dubai, 5th November 2019 – Emaar, is pleased to announce the results of The Landmark Design Competition launched in May 2019.
The brief was to encourage architects to challenge their imagination process and come up with innovative and unique concepts to develop another iconic piece of architecture at the new world-class waterfront development in Dubai Creek Harbour.
Known for its incredible architectural feats, Emaar’s vision for Dubai Creek Harbour is to design an urban city that respects the culture and climate of Dubai, but also exposes children and families to new worldviews with various recreational activities creating a community feeling.
With more than 100 proposals received, Emaar has announced Of. Studio, a UK based architectural firm as the winner of the competition. Their theme, “garden in the coast” presented real architectural solutions, that enhances the experience of city life for people – to live, work and interact capitalizing on latest technologies; while also keeping in mind the culture and local values of the UAE.
With this competition, Emaar’s goal was to inspire the new generation to shape their imagination into a vision that provides new worldviews. The judging panel were impressed by entries proposing creative, innovative and iconic solutions respecting the urban context and further enhancing Dubai’s profile as a city with amazing building and structures.
