To provide an entertaiment anchor the hotel district planned for the Dubailand area outside the City of Dubai, the owner envisioned a park that embodied the very latest in ride technology, combined with creative dynamic architecture that would define a new level of theme park experience. From the beginning R/Hdo jumped into the process, generating ‘blue-sky’ concept plans that gave physical form to each new element of the storyline as it was developed, discussed and refined. As the plans, program and participants became more and more complete, we worked to coordinate the needs of all the elements, in a physical enviroment that was both exciting and relaxing.
