This competition entry represents the paradox between constant motion and poised stability, expressing the ephemeral permanence, immaterial presence, and transient strength that is the future of Dubai. Ever changing, Dubai Constant is the much needed anchor that will ensure Dubai’s constant transformation and growth.
The rich programs encourage spontaneous and unscheduled events that dismantle any possibility of pinning a singular reading to the experience. It thrives on fluid and multiple interpretations and transformations, similar to a habitable living sculpture, as it de-centers monumentality and makes it accessible to the masses.
Dubai is about change. That’s why it needs a constant.
