    Blooming Forest
    Dubai | United Arab Emirates
     
    Blooming Forest is a proposal for a new large public space in Dubai, aiming to merge together the lifestyle by the beach and the lifestyle in the forest, having the facilities and amenities from a shore destination while being surrounded by leafy and lush nature.

    With that framework in mind, we proposed a project inspired by the concept of blossom, comprising a combination of natural landscape and an artificial blooming of huge colorful structures mimicking over-scaled flowers that host a wide range of public space features and facilities at their base contact with the ground level.

    The combination of natural and artificial blossoms generates an enchanting forest on the bank of the creek, providing eye-catching and entertaining functions and activities for kids and adults alike along the pedestrian promenade.

    In order to enhance that enchanting character of the proposal at night time, colorful LED lighting features were proposed along the artificial flower stems, creating a glowing magical environment.

    As highlighted component of this intervention, it’s worth mentioning the several wooden tree-houses that were proposed, which would serve not only as vertical playful structures, but also as human scale landmarks within the new creek’s promenade, from which to have awesome creek views.

Neighborhood Intervention

What is a neighborhood intervention?
This is the medium scale type of interventions that take place in the public realm of a city, related to the altering of a portion of a neighborhood. A type of intervention of such magnitude and notoriety that impacts not only the immediate surrounding urban environment, but rather the urban dynamics of a whole neighborhood, becoming an urban landmark and a local attractor of social interactions in a given neighborhood.
 
Most of the times, this typology combines several intervention tactics such as Painted Scapes and Grounded Objects, intervening existing urban settings, almost from the lens of Landscape Design, by creating spaces of opportunity for collective leisure, entertainment, play & joy, etc., catalyzing major social interactions across the neighborhood.
 
The main objective of this typology is to trigger a massive public interest to the place through a strong visual impact, usually of a permanent nature, encouraging the rise of high public affluence and establishing an urban landmark that can cultivate important human dynamics and boost commercial activity.

Siamo arrivati propio per caso, pasavamo vicino con la metro e poi lo abbiamo visto, non ci aspettavamo una cosa del genere! In fatti non abbiamo mai visto una cosa del genere come Pegasus Trail, un vero spazio pubblico fatto molto bene.
