The Abu Dhabi Flamingo Visitor Center competition is the second in a series set in the Al Wathba Wetland Reserve; following the success of the Flamingo Observation Tower competition, in partnership with EAD (Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi).
For the Abu Dhabi Flamingo Visitor Center competition, participants are tasked with creating designs for a new visitor centre for the wetland reserve that is in keeping with Al Wathba’s unique environment.
The visitor centre would need to provide a few key facilities such as an information centre with a small cafe, terrace, souvenir shop, display area for specimens, training center, toilets and a car park.
The Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) is interested in constructing Abu Dhabi Flamingo Visitor Center, as such winning designs will need to strike a balance between bold and sensitive aesthetics, allowing the center to fit into the natural surroundings while at the same time having the potential to become an iconic landmark in its own right.
Competition is open to all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum). Correspondence with organizers must be conducted in English; All information submitted by participants must be in English
