Dubai | United Arab Emirates
 
CANOPY RINGS is a proposal for a large waterfront pedestrian promenade in Dubai’s Creek, with the aim of merging together the lifestyle by the beach and the lifestyle in the forest, beautifying the public promenade while making it suitable for outdoor lifestyle under the harsh weather conditions in the Emirates.

For that task, we proposed a promenade full of lush nature combined with a system of colorful canopies in different sizes and heights, as a mixed strategy to provide a significant amount of shadows and fresh areas over the large paved promenade.

Besides the shadowing strategy, our common ambition with the client was to achieve the creation of a new hotspot in Dubai, a referent landmark along the creek.

Therefore, the colorful canopies were an unusual response to create a recognizable and vibrant public space that would call the attention of passersby and boat riders.

The combination of natural landscape and the artificial system of canopies generates a colorful forest on the bank of the creek, providing entertaining functions and activities for kids and adults alike along the pedestrian promenade.

As featured space within the proposal, a very funky football field was designed floating on the creek, following with the circular approach of the canopies.

A multifunctional space not only for playing football, but also for hosting events, to be used as playground or even as gathering point.

The canopies are a simple yet effective system of circular rings interconnected to each other, creating an eye-catching solution in which bigger canopies host those functions beneath them while smaller canopies host the lighting features enhancing the proposal at night time, using neon colorful LED lights within other circular bars.

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.
