Al Fayah Park will look like a 65 foot high mound of earth from the outside using the natural landscape as inspiration.

The roof of the park is designed from the patterns in the desert formed when the hot sun cracks the earth.

The 20 meter high shaded garden will feature cafes, play spaces, a library, pools, streams and community vegetable gardens and at night the elevated plates will become meeting areas when the temperatures drops.
