Runner Up - 4th Edition Urban Commissions - Dubai Design Week 2018, Honorable Mention

For edition 4.0 the challenge designers need to respond to was 'Water Feature'. Dubai is synonymous with water, the shoreline that extends along the length of the city, the Dubai Creek, the mammoth Dubai Water Canal project, the Dubai Fountains, and is rooted in its culture of giving as the refrigerated potable water cabins outside of private residences for passersby who require thirsts be quenched. Moreover, regional architecture hosts water features as central elements in courtyards of homes, acting as a spiritual refuge. These features cool the air around them to enhance both the physical and audio landscapes with the serenity only natural elements command.

Submissions were requested to design an urban water feature that can be placed in the outdoor area of Dubai Design District (d3)'s Design Quarter; be it a pond, birdbath, fountain, or any design that invites people to gather around water for enjoyment but must be proposed as an urban element that is a majority body of water.
