Dubai has become on of the world’s most dynamic areas for architectural innovation and it is about to take another massive leap forward. Mohammed Bin Rashid has announced plans to build the Mall of the World, which will become the largest mall in the world, but that is just a start. The structure will be interconnected to over 20,000 hotel rooms using covered streets. A theater area will be included based on New York’s Broadway district. The world’s largest indoor family theme park is included in the plans, plus a 3 million square foot wellness district to cater to medical tourists.
This ambitious plan embodies the spirit of Dubai’s desire to become one of the world’s most important cultural, business, and entertainment hubs. Imagine a vacation where you never stepped outside, but were able to visit every site of a large city. It could soon be a reality.
