AE7 won a Gold World Architecture News Awards 2020 in the Future Projects Award for Urban Design category for the master planning and design of the Development of Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary (RAWS).

RAWS is located in Dubai, UAE and is home to approximately 270 species of fauna and 47 species of flora. It is identified as a globally important Bird Area by Birdlife International and is a unique wetland within the UAE, having been declared as the UAE’s first RAMSAR Site in 2007.

Judges admired the design for “its strong integration of an impressive variety of zones, incorporating a pedestrian system with low disturbance to the environment and ecology while allocating appropriate tourist facilities.”

Congratulations to the team!
