The most original, futuristic and technologically advanced park in the world has appeared in the central area of the hot megalopolis Dubai. The studio MASK Architects & Design "grew" Oasys’ fantastic design constructions in the form of giant leaves of tropical plants in the park of Abu Dhabi.
Oasys is an oasis space built from palm-like structure modules-leaves that are used as the functional elements of the system. Each giant module sprays water through nozzles located in its lower inner side, and solar panels are installed in its outer upper side, which accumulate solar energy. The Oasys acts as a barrier that protects human health from the harmful effects of the metropolis’ activity, such as heat, ultraviolet rays, noise, wind and sandstorms.
This is the main system that controls the atmosphere in the park so that it is comfortable for everyone. Living trees grow around the leaves-modules, which reduce the level of sound pollution and the penetration of wind into the space. It also helps to create an environmentally friendly space that conveys the image and feeling of a green oasis in the middle of the city. As chief architects Öznur Pınar Çer and Danilo Petta from MASK Architects & Design explaned.
In-sheets have a built-in backlight that glows in the dark, forming graphic light silhouettes.
