CHALLENGE /

“Emaar’s vision for Dubai Creek Harbour is to create an urban city that respects the culture and climate of Dubai, a place where people can live, work and play in harmony with nature and a community where families can reach their aspirations for generations to come.” In line with this direction, and paralleled with the original functionality of the Mosque being a place of worship and prayer, as well as a center of education, gathering and social welfare, we present our design as a natural ‘extension’ to the Dubai Creek Tower and its plaza.

CONCEPT /

In addition to the worshiping rituals the space embodies, the project acts as a social gathering space in the form of an amphitheater-like bridge that connects the tower’s plaza and surrounding neighborhoods to the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary on the West. All the elements of the traditional Mosque are studied and revisited in a contemporary manner and integrated into this urban context, resulting in an iconic structure that complements through its archi- tectonics Calatrava’s design of the Creek Tower beside it.
