DUBAI 10 March 2018: The UAE Park in China will open in December this year in Nanning, the capital of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in southern China.
Dubai Municipality, which is representing the UAE in Expo 2018 China, has participated in the design of the project covering an area of 1,700 square metres.
Marwan Al Mohammed, Director of General Projects Department at Dubai Municipality said that the park is being built with high professional standards and quality and an excellent creative design philosophy has been used to reflect the development process witnessed by the UAE over time, said Wam.
He said that the visitor’s journey to the park begins through the Barajeel area, which reflects the UAE heritage of wind towers. “A replica of the logo of the upcoming Expo 2020 Dubai is placed in the centre of this area. It is proposed to use virtual reality technology, which enables the visitor to follow the stages of the unique architectural development of the UAE,” he added.
“In order to introduce the visitors to the ancient Bedouin life a Bedouin Tent is located in the park with necessary heritage and aesthetic elements, such as pottery and Falaj (traditional irrigation canal), which is connected to a lake with a traditional wooden bridge to cross over to the other side, where the visitor reaches a modern urban area, which reflects in a unique manner the process of development and the extraordinary urban growth witnessed by the UAE.
“In this area there will be an open space with Sunken Seating facilities, where the visitor will be able to enjoy the Skyline Fountain and the metal formations that form the most important architectural monuments of the UAE such as the Burj Khalifa and Sheikh Zayed Mosque,” Al Mohammed explained.
He pointed out that the modern urban area also contains a mini outdoor theatre with a large screen for the transmission of all national events of the UAE, such as the UAE National Day celebrations among other national events celebrated in the country.
The design of the park was fully prepared by an experienced professional team in the General Projects Department of Dubai Municipality. The team was keen to apply all quality standards and mastery on the unique designs of all sections and areas of the park. The organisers of Expo 2018 China praised the uniqueness of the project and expressed their wish to use it as a technical reference for their consultants during the preparation of technical reports.
The project comes within the framework of Dubai Municipality’s continuous endeavor to highlight the global urban development of the UAE and to emphasise its distinguished position in the architectural and engineering field by highlighting it as an inspiring and distinctive place in this field.
