As part of the region’s ongoing campaign towards educational excellence, a Dubai campus of Harvard Medical School was planned in Healthcare City in Bur Dubai. This new facility was created as an extension and support to the science and research for the main university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Mediterranean motif environment of the Healthcare City inspired the new research building. The grand rotunda that forms the apex of the two research wings is the main entrance with a prominent gesture to the main road. AE7 partners were involved in this project as the managing and design Directors of Burt Hill’s UAE offices, and managed the Client and team on a daily basis.
