Start of a new era for Dubai
Congratulations to Dubai on a successful bid for the 2020 world Expo! This is fantastic news for the emirate as a whole and indeed the landscaping industry as it will create much needed projects in the construction and landscaping sector for years to comes, as well as putting the UAE on the global radar once again as a center for innovation and creativity!
As always Landscape magazine showcases the best of what is happening in the industry from within the region and beyond, whether it is the announcement of new projects or the completion and handover of projects that started some time ago.
In this issue, we look at the landscaping of Thailand’s central Chiang Rai’s shopping mall complex. Something that is pretty standard in the UAE but in this part of Thailand, this project will become a focal community meeting point, as well as a recreational park for families to enjoy! (page 38)
Over in the UK, a pioneering Garden Bridge project has just been announced for 2017 costing £150 million. The pedestrian bridge crosses the river and links South Bank with Aldwych, Covent Garden and the Strand. (page 24)
We also have a feature on Bahrain’s most historical fort-Forte Al Fateh on page 18 and much more inside!
