Dubai Design District, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The Dubai Design District (d3) has tapped Foster + Partners to design its masterplan's second phase. Spanning one million-square-feet, the new development will be a "Creative Community" that will serve as a "thriving cultural epicenter" within d3, and an "incubator" for emerging designers an artists.
Foster's design, chosen following a competitive selection process that considered a number of high-profile architects, includes flexible offices, co-working communal facilities, outdoor display venues, and a number of pedestrianized spaces set within a vibrant landscape. >>>
