Al Selah – Rethinking the city and nature


Merging green spaces into the city infrastructure

Al Selah was created to establish a closer connection between the city and nature. The project proposes to build a vertical green site as an alternative to the expansion across land. Walkways that connect people through the Mangrove National Park in addition to the kayaking activity. Skywalks and sky gardens that allow people to interact with the mangrove in different levels. A series of vertical follies that offers a unique experience, and allows for 360 views of the important components of Abu Dhabi's natural and cultural landscape.
