The seven features of Al Wasl Plaza
Al Wasl Features
Al Wasl Plaza
Listen to what Simon Gardner, Director of North American business development, has to say about the Day Waterwall feature.
The Glass Water wall defines one of two pathways into the Al Wasl Garden, offering a unique sense of transparency, and an illusion of massive blocks of glacial ice in the desert.
Listen to what Simon Gardner, Director of North American business development, has to say about the Night Waterwall feature.
The Stone Water wall defines the second discovery pathway into the garden, offering a dynamic aesthetic to the space with a sense of solid texture and familiar, regional materials.
The water feature consists of two elements. A shallow pool of water and aerated column of water. The reflective water skin is a simple and calm surface that reflects the grandeur of the space and the trellis structure. Vertical jets rise from the water surface to create an array of circular water forms and structures. These jets will frame the central water feature located in Al Wasl Plaza, creating a gateway and helping evoke travel and exploration into the garden.
Small bubbling water jets are located throughout the infinity edge pool. These small masses of water entice younger children and toddlers to play within the water feature. These small mounds of water generate subtle concentric rings and dynamic water patterns within the reflective surface. A range of sequenced LED pin lights will be incorporated throughout the water feature surface that will provide a twinkly star canvas during night
Al Wasl Gardens
Leadership Pavilion Fountain
Listen to what Simon Gardner, Director of North American business development, has to say about the Leadership Pavillion Fountain.
This fountain welcomes people as they enter into the space and entices visitors to explore the distinct architectural space created by the Pavilion, Pavilion façade and Canopy.
The water feature consists of two elements. An elevated water table that creates a shallow reflective surface. The reflective water skin is a simple and calm surface that reflects the grandeur of the space and the trellis structure. The second element is illuminated with LED lights that accent the façade of the Pavilion with caustic effects created by the movement of the water.
Al Wasl Avenue Fountain
Listen to what Simon Gardner, Director of North American business development, has to say about the Al Wasl Avenue water feature.
Al Wasl Avenue water feature is located within the pedestrian corridor between the Arrival Plaza and the Al Wasl. The water feature is designed to be interactive and accessible to all patrons.
The feature consists of two elliptical waterskins that reflect the surrounding architecture. During low pedestrian flow, the water feature activates 14 sequencing water jet arrays that are individually controlled to provide dynamic water expressions. The features are also illuminated with hi fidelity LED technology that enhance the overall water feature at night.
Al Wasl Legacy Features
Al Wasl Plaza
These features will be active after the expo
The Al Wasl Plaza central water feature combines innovation, nature and beauty. True to its name, it has been designed to inspire connection. This immersive interactive water feature includes a series of reflective water scrim that creates morphing shapes and patterns. Complementary vertical jets and oscillating nozzles produce a dynamic dancing water experience that evolves throughout the day. Innovative lighting technologies are activated at night and integrated into the greater choreographed shows.
The Grand staircase allows patrons to descend into the central Al Wasl Garden. This impressive staircase is accentuated with a series of cascading water steps and integrated LED lights. As patrons descend into the garden they see, feel and hear the water flowing around them allowing them to reconnect with nature.
The Sunrise water feature accents the gateway into the Al Wasl. Visitors are welcomed by a simple but impressive central column of water rises from a circular water scrim. This creates a beacon that draws people into the Al Wasl garden and also reflects the graduar of the Al Wasl dome structure.
