Architecture, Master Planning
Master planning and architecture for a 2,200,000 SF mixed-use development comprised of luxury residential, hotels, office,
retail, cultural facilities and public spaces in high-performance sustainable architecture with a creative and innovative design befitting a worldwide icon and bestowing a visual effect as a unique, landmark symbol for Dubai. The project involved the redesign of the Podium Buildings and the Central Mall area between the high-rise towers. The podium development was designed as an organic city, rather than a contrived environment. The project includes an MGM Grand hotel and residences, Sky Lofts, large collection of retail and restaurants, conference center with multipurpose ballrooms, 10-theater cinema, media creation and post production studio, the Pearl Health Clinic & Medical Center, sports arena, kids play & party venue, the Dubai Pearl Creative Society Academy for Music/Dance/Film, child nursery and kindergarten, and the
Pearl Opera & Music House – a 3-venue performing arts center
totaling 1,800 seats.
