Sinews of Growth: Generative Infrastructural Urbanism in Dubai

Published on: May 2008​
Genre: Dubai Model​ Category: Policy Brief/ Policy Note​

As Dubai embarks on the Dubai World Central (DWC) project in parallel with its Urban Development Framework plan, it is instructive to review similar moments in the Emirate’s past when large-scale infrastructural projects generated formal changes in the metropolitan area. In contemporary circumstances, high capital liquidity from a more diversified economic base, matched with the desire to continue developing Dubai’s international tourism and trade profiles, has launched a new round of infrastructure planning and construction. Recommendations are offered on how these projects will spatially impact the metropolitan form and functionality, and how the Emirate can best prepare for these changes.
