Call for Entries: Urban Commissions 4.0

Dubai is synonymous with water; the shoreline that extends along the length of the city, the Dubai Creek, the mammoth Dubai Water Canal project, the Dubai Fountains. Moreover, regional architecture hosts water features as central elements in courtyards of homes, acting as a spiritual refuge. These features cool the air around them and enhance the physical and audio landscapes, with serenity only natural elements command.

This fourth edition of Urban Commissions invites designers living in the UAE to design an urban water feature that can be placed in the outdoor arena of Dubai Design District (d3). The water feature can be a pond, birdbath, fountain, or any design that invites people to gather around water.

Selected by a notable judging panel, the winning design must be capable of being entirely manufactured in the UAE within a budget of AED50,000. The winning proposal will be unveiled at Dubai Design Week 2018.

Deadline: January 30, 2018

The call is open to anyone residing in the UAE.
Both students and professionals are encouraged to participate.
