FL-ANGE, the expo project, is situated at the corner of Dubai Harbor, which is one of the largest harbors globally. Adjacent to the cruise ship terminal and encompassed by the sea on three sides, the project’s location holds strategic significance and serves as a monorail stop, attracting individuals from various countries. The project encompasses exposition areas, exhibition areas, museums, shopping venues, food courts, and office spaces. Designed to serve as an expo during specific times of the year, it transcends temporal boundaries by accommodating a diverse range of activities throughout its existence. It counteracts Dubai's intense heat through sustainable strategies and wind cones. With its fluid form, the design seamlessly merges with the surrounding water. As it ascends, it provides a distinct perspective of Dubai and seamlessly integrates into everyday life with its diverse working and communal areas.
