The final design is a fantastic vista, juxtaposing the architectural landmarks of both ancient and modern Dubai as seen through an Islamic-inspired portal in the foreground. Visually anchored by the intricate mosaic detailing of Dubai’s historic old town, the architectural structures of Dubai’s ultra modern skyscrapers rise majestically above the horizon. The design showcases the high-rise buildings of Dubai as if one is looking through an old brick arched window, with a slightly bent branch of a palm tree falling across the view.
