Each year, Dubai Design week includes a diverse range of installations that captivate and inspire visitors.

Installations are a key feature of Dubai Design Week, bringing together designers, architects, brands and creatives from around the globe to demonstrate the power of imagination and innovation in the field of design.

Staged across Dubai Design District (d3) during the six-day festival, a curated range of outdoor installations and interventions transform public spaces into immersive experiences.


This year’s Dubai Design Week will feature over 20 installations with a focus on how design, science and technology can converge to reclaim materials of our past, as well as reimagine new forms that foster sustainable practices.

Installations include: The Altostrata, a 3-D-printed architectural pavilion made from biodegradable sugar-based PLA by FabPub, a joint venture between Mamou-Mani Architects and Therme Group; Made In Earth Collective from India take an ordinary agricultural by-product, loofah, to create a sensorial landscape; and architects Wael Al Awar and Kazuma Yamao, of waiwai, will present Urban Hadeera, a prototype of a traditional structural shelter, using sustainable sustainable, salt-based building materials developed through their research project Wetland Lab.
