Snøhetta's New Project In UAE

This is the new project by Norwegian architect Snøhetta in the emirate
of Ras Al-Khaimah, United Arab Emirates construction of which is set to begin later this year.
Gateway will be situated 150 km east of Dubai and will mark the gateway to the
emirate and form the entrance to the new planned capital city of Ras Al Khaimah.

The urban master plan for the city is currently being under taken by the
Netherlands based architectural practice OMA.

The surrounding desert and mountains influenced the design of the Gateway.
The design provides many varieties of shade and protected, intimate space.
In the center of the complex there will be a 200 m tower housing
a 5 star hotel that the United Arab Emirates are so famous for.
