    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.

GROUNDED OBJECT

Product definition

It is an inhabitable architectural object inserted on top of an existing urban environment, but alienated from its surroundings.
 
This architectural object intervenes in the space by touching the ground and acting as an accessible and multifunctional platform, allowing people to stand on top of it and interact directly.
 
The main objective of this conceptual prototype is to trigger a massive public interest to the place, encouraging the rise of high public affluence, becoming a remarkable virtual landmark that attracts customers and cultivates important human dynamics and commercial activity.
