This two-day conference will bring together more than 45 international and regional industry experts and over 400 senior level landscape architects
Cities are redesigning their public spaces to meet with the residents’ requirements for today. Urban planners and landscape architects have designed strategies and implemented projects to encourage residents to engage with their surroundings. In Dubai alone, La Mer, City Walk, and Bluewaters are some of the most prominent urban recreational spaces developed over the last few years that have gained immense popularity amongst its residents.
As part of its strategy, Dubai Municipality is encouraging innovation not just within public spaces but also within the playgrounds and parks, thereby designing spaces that promote learning and development in conjunction with playing. Earlier this year, Dubai Municipality announced it will be 50 new playgrounds and squares for kids across the city. With the rapid urbanization of cities, urban planners and landscape architects have joined hands to incorporate green elements and develop urban playground designs that is in sync with the needs of today’s children.
The goal is to build modern open, flexible and engaging playscapes that will benefit children and communities at large while keeping in mind the sustainable and safety standards that need to be maintained. Dynamo Playgrounds, a world leader in innovative playground equipment will be participating at the Middle East Smart Landscape Summit as a gold sponsor of the event yet again, and Rob Lockhart, Chief Compliance Officer from Dynamo Playgrounds will deliver a 20 minute presentation at the conference.
“We have seen how the play environment has transformed over the last few years and the importance of creating playgrounds with learning opportunities for children. The importance on moving away from the traditional playground ecosystem to building playscapes that are not only designed for play, but on nurturing motor development in children features as part of the program agenda of the Middle East Smart Landscape Summit, being held in April 2020,” said Mr. Brad Hariharan, Regional Director, Expotrade Middle East, organizers of the summit.
This two-day conference will bring together more than 45 international and regional industry experts and over 400 senior level landscape architects, landscape designers, urban planners, sustainability experts, engineering consultants, municipal and government officials from across the GCC region.
