Bluewaters Island

Poised to become one of the world’s largest tourism hotspots, the 1.6 billion-dollar, man-made, mixed-use destination contains distinctive retail, residential, hospitality, and entertainment zones in addition to a featured centerpiece, Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel. A series of amusement avenues, boulevards, and promenades create an interconnected walkable flow of limitless smart living and leisure alternatives. Drawing from a contemporary design aesthetic, the overarching character for the floating oasis is modern and clean with a strong use of straight lines and simple forms. The island city links to the mainland with a direct roadway, monorail system, and pedestrian bridge.

Working collaboratively with a multidisciplinary team, EDSA served as a unifying thread between the site’s four quadrants, conducting a visioning workshop, and providing conceptual master planning through detailed design services.
