YOUNG ARTIST AWARD
HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum and HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan expressed interest in the design, plan and model of a project our Head Architect Amer Shawa was presenting at the Sheikha Manal’s Young Artist Award Art Competition that took place in Dubai. The Story of UAE museum project was shortlisted from among 110 submissions sent under the Architecture category, giving the project mock up the opportunity to be displayed at the prestigious City Walk Phase II for a whole week. The unique idea of this particular museum is that unlike the traditional indoor pavilions, the objects would be displayed in an underwater environment while visitors pass through an underwater tunnel. The sculptures are displayed to be observed chronologically to tell the story of the UAE from its birth to the present day. To know more about this project, click here.
