Dubai is a city defined by manmade islands that exist as landform as well as a urban form. A parallel of the free market economic strategies heavily implemented over the last 20 years, the planning of Dubai has been a competition amongst developers that has defined the boundaries of Dubai‚Äôs urban islands. In most conditions the urban island would be judged a failure of planning, but in the case of Dubai it provides a unique opportunity. This project proposes a consolidation of the necessary facilities to hold the first Middle Eastern Olympic games and will form a new island in the desert of the UAE.
