FOREGROUND

In this issue we meet a rising star of the UAE landscape industry, William Bennett. The British native who first came to Dubai in 2014 is now a senior Landscape Architect. He won both Best Residential Exterior and Best Project of the Year at the identity awards in 2015 (within a year of his arrival) for his first project in the region, Akoya Oxygen, which was delivered within 12 months. We cover a range of regional and international projects including, a fresh look for Dubai Festival City’s promenade and a hospital healing garden in downtown Bangkok. Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre (ASCC) is featured on page 38. It’s a world-class museum district within Kuwait City and forms part of Kuwait’s new national cultural district.

Other projects include a luxury residential gated community on the outskirts of Buenos Aires that is home to a golf course, polo field and soccer pitch, as well as a community park that is anything but traditional, thanks to its innovative design. Central Park is a public space for residents that unfolds as a pedestrian green strip made up of ornamental grasses, enabling its users to feel as though they are immersed in nature.
