Emerging London-based firm Baharash Architecture has been selected to design phase 2 of the 46-hectar Dubai Sustainable City development. The practice is set to open an office in Dubai following the victory against international anonymous teams from the United States, Lebanon, Jordan, UK, and UAE.
Phase 2 consists of a Mixed-Use Zone, a Juma Mosque, an Institute for Ecological Engineering, a Museum & Planetarium, a “Green” School for K-6, an Eco-Resort, Country Club and Equestrian Center.
The overall city was master-planned by Stringa Planning Studio, an Australian planning firm. The city was then divided into two phases, with the phase 2 work included in this international competition format.
