New York University, Abu Dhabi

    Landscape design for New York University Abu Dhabi tall palm trees in front of building.

    High quality walkable campus at the primary university in Abu Dhabi. Working with Rafael Vinoly Architects, the landscape vision was to use shade and water to create a ‘curated landscape’ that could be used throughout the year, providing collaborative outdoor learning, permanent and temporary exhibition and meeting spaces for students. An activation programme ensures that the functionality and value of the space is maximised. 

    Upper floors of residences are linked by linear ‘highline’ landscapes and footbridges from which the lower central spine, sculptures, exhibition spaces and grand Palm Court can be viewed.
