Creekfront Project, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

creekfront mlp03
In 2007 Urbis HK Ltd. joined the Creekfront Project Dubai, and were commissioned to develop the landscape proposals for the southern shore of the Creek, an area of approximately 40 hectares, from the proposed Ferry Terminal to Al Seef Park, encompassing Bastakia (heritage and cultural district), the Ruler’s Court Promenade, mooring for His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum’s yacht, and side streets adjacent to the Spice and Gold Soukhs.

Concept designs and design development were approved and a model constructed shortly before the project was placed on hold due to the global economic crisis.

I worked as Senior Project Manager and Senior Landscape Architect on this project, proposing hardscape, sculptural and planting solutions that referenced Bedouin and Emirati culture, as well as the maritime tradition of the Arabian Peninsula.
