Design International is delighted to announce that Avenues Mall, Silicon Oasis has made it through to the shortlist of the WAN Awards in the Commercial category. Judged by some of the world’s best known names in the field, the WAN AWARDS has evolved into the world’s largest international architectural awards programme.
Avenues Mall, Silicon Oasis is to become Lulu Group International's new flagship mall in Dubai and will become the new gate to the 7.2 square kilometers ‘Dubai Silicon Oasis’, a smart city with world class facilities. The revolutionary design of the mall is composed by five gigantic shape-alike pebbles, and nspired by ancient Arabian movements across the desert. Design International wanted to offer both a strong architectural statement and an imposing gate into an oasis of calm and tranquillity in the otherwise hectic pace of modern suburban Dubai. Inside, the mall features nature at its most exquisite values, with five plazas that resemble the five elements of an oasis: The Cave, The Canyon, The Forest, The Lagoon and The Mirage.
