DUBAI | Dubai Design District (D3)

1. Dubai’s d3 Design District takes shape


DUBAI // The d3 Design District, a one million square meter creative complex inspired by New York’s Meatpacking District and London’s Shoreditch, will be created by renowned architecture firm Foster & Partners.

The design of the complex features “flexible offices” shared work facilities, external display and pedestrian areas and gardens. This new creative space will be a thriving cultural centre that inspires designers and budding artists and attracts visitors to the region, reported WAM, the state news agency.

d3, which will open its doors to the public in 2017, will be a hub for local designers, budding artists, art galleries and studios.

Earlier this year, Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashed Al Maktoum, Vice-President of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, expressed her approval of the plans for d3, which is being built close to the Burj Khalifa.
2. Foster + Partners to build hipster village in Dubai


Foster + Partners has revealed its plans for a creative community in Dubai modelled on the fashionable neighbourhoods of New York's Meatpacking District and east London's Shoreditch.

Norman Foster's architecture firm will deliver the second phase of the Dubai Design District, also known as D3, which is a new creative quarter being built from scratch in the United Arab Emirates city.

The aim of the new neighbourhood is to nurture the city's emerging local talent, as well as to provide a hub for established studios and galleries.
