The UAE’s forty million date palms alone generate approximately 500,000 tonnes of palm waste annually.

Date palm waste can be transformed into contemporary screens, which make efficient, natural sunshades. Creating date palm shelters sustainably disposes of palm waste (relieving the agricultural sector of this challenging process) whilst reducing carbon footprints through their natural cooling ability.

Graphic posters line the walls of Palm Renaissance, showcasing design possibilities of repurposing this waste in architectural forms. The palm’s strength and versatility make it capable of producing value-added end products.

RTA Dubai plans to build an additional 1550 bus shelters. Palm Renaissance proposes a sustainability-focused solution that is mutually beneficial for the economy and the environment.
