Dubai Street Atlas
“Streets and their sidewalks, the main public places of a city, are its most vital organs. Think of a city and what comes to mind? Its streets.” Janette Sadik-Khan
Systematica’s latest publication “Dubai Street Atlas”, part of an ongoing research titled “Walkable Cities of Tomorrow” is issued.
The monograph focuses on studying the streets and the public realm of Dubai using cutting-edge analytical tools in order to propose potential interventions to improve their quality, as we believe that the future of our cities lies in the quality of their public realm.
During the past three decades, Dubai has witnessed an unprecedented growth, turning the city into a global metropolis. While the city mainly invests in design and construction of avant-garde buildings and stunning landmarks, the quality of public realm is still lagging behind. We believe that rethinking the streets of Dubai is the key challenge for the future of city.
“Dubai Street Atlas” is a result of Systematica’s over-a-decade experience in Dubai as well as studies carried out through its research unit “Transform Transport”. We hope the book would contribute to the documentation of the current conditions of Dubai streets and trigger interesting discussions on possible future changes and challenges.
