Foster + Partners Opens Dubai Office
- Jun 12, 2017
Foster + Partners has opened a new office in Dubai, located in the Design District. The building will provide a regional base for the practice to serve clients in the Emirate.
The company’s first project in Dubai was The Index, an 80-story office and residential tower located in Dubai’s International Finance Centre. Foster + Partners also worked on two new Apple Inc. stores, most recently in the Dubai Mall, which opened in April 2017.
“Dubai is emerging as a global hub for the design and construction industry, exemplified by the varied scope and breadth of our projects in the region,” said Gerard Evenden, head of studio for Foster + Partners, in prepared remarks. “We have been heavily involved in a number of projects over the past two decades, from the Index Tower that opened in 2011, to presently working on the Dubai Design District Creative Community and Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation (DIDI); office developments such as ICD Brookfield Place and the new Mobility Pavilion for the Expo 2020. The opening of our new office in the city reflects our commitment and belief in Dubai as a centre for design and innovation.”
