Forum : Sustainable Urbanism and Planning in emerging Gulf Citie
Development of the real-estate sector in the United Arab Emirates constitutes a major segment of its capital investment, sustaining its expatriate community and workforce. It is also a major player in shaping the image of its cities as emerging, modern Gulf State cities with an infrastructure capable of attracting investors. Abu Dhabi 2030, Dubai 2020 and their future urban plans advocate ambitions schemas for the emergence of new urban morphologies, architectural typologies and sustainable spaces. They also make important symbolic statements about the future of social relationships, communal transformations and the built environment.
