old town fractal landscape

Schematic proposal for the new civic center for the historic district of Old Town in Ras al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates. The project involved the preparation of a heritage conservation master plan for the old town and conceptual ideas on the redevelopment of the area for the next decade. The design proposed a new subterranean civic center in place of the road that bisects the town. This proposal explored the creation of a fractal landscape derived from the shards and geometry of the traditional houses but reimagines it as a series of multi-layered spaces. Project was under Cadiz International (2009).
