Walkability and connectivity are two characteristics that are becoming increasingly important in the face of growing cities and rapid urbanisation around the world.
The Urban Corridor is a 7.4 Km urban rejuvenation effort that looks to convert a long highway into a mixed-use pedestrian boulevard, connecting the older parts of Dubai with the city’s recent development.
The project is designed to challenge the existing scale of the city, placing pedestrians at the centre of the street. The aim of such an intervention is to create spaces within the city that increase citizen mobility by adapting this new planning approach. The program aims to make effective improvements to the city’s urban landscape through minimal changes.
