In a city known for its skyscrapers, the Dubai Design Bureau has been making sure that building codes are not being used to create a kind of “design zoo” in the Middle East.
Dubai’s latest “urban jungle” is a high-rise office complex, which includes a two-story building with a facade made up of the city’s distinctive red-orange paint, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.

Dubais new “urban jungue” includes a building with red and orange paint, which is meant to symbolize Dubai’s vibrant, diverse, and innovative cityscape.
Dubaii’s new building code is a code-compliant urban jungle.
The building is the first of a series of high-rises being built in Dubai as part of a broader plan to create an urban jungle with an urban design that is unique to the city.
Dubays design bureau said it wanted to “rediscover the vibrant cityscape” and incorporate a more urban look with the aim of creating a “visual identity that is as vibrant as the vibrant skyline” while creating a city “with the most diverse and creative architecture in the region.”

Dubaidia’s new “Urban Jungle” building includes a 2-story, 7,200-square-foot building with the facade made of red and blue paint, with a courtyard and an underground water reservoir, with the water channel leading into a tunnel system that connects to the courtyard.
Dubae’s design bureau has created a “design jungle” in Dubai in an effort to create “the most vibrant and creative urban design in the area.”
Dubay’s new Urban Jungle building, which was designed by Jean Nouveau, is the second such building in Dubai to incorporate a design code-friendly urban jungle that was built in the city in 2017.
Dubia’s first Urban Jungle, which also included a water system and underground tunnel system, was also built in 2017, the same year as Dubai’s first skyscraper.
Dubateau’s design code includes the following criteria for building design: a) the facade must be of a red, orange, or yellow color, b) the exterior of the building must be made of a solid color, c) the interior of the exterior must be covered in green and yellow, and d) the building exterior must feature transparent and translucent materials.
Dubi’s new design bureau is creating a similar design jungle in Dubai for its second skyscraper, which will be constructed next year.
The new skyscraper is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

Dubailand’s government announced in January that it would launch a new design code in 2019 to create more sustainable buildings.
The government said the new code would be “more eco-friendly, more green and less dense,” which will include more green space and a lower carbon footprint.
Dubaya, a city in the United Arab Emirate of Dubai, is a hub for tourism and commerce, with over 1 million people living and working in the capital city.
The country has one of the highest population densities in the world, and its population of 7.2 million is a third of the world’s.
