Rasha Al-Tekreeti, has repurposed an abandoned amusement park with an eye on the tourism of tomorrow. Her DNATA hub seeks to partner with Dubai’s main air services provider to offer a holistic tourist solution post-Expo 2020, bringing culturally aware visitors and locals closer together at the same time.
The geodesic dome will unify the indoors and outdoors, while shielding visitors from the desert heat, and act as a unified travel solution for all budgets. Businesses dealing with food, local culture, hotels and even camping will come together in one space, exemplifying both how deserted urban spaces can be redeveloped and the future of integrated tourism solutions. Events at the site’s interior domes, which will be redeveloped in stages, will engage visitors with local culture and society. This future-forward solution will bring visitors and residents together.
