The sky is the limit
In this hub of firsts and tallests, students will be blown away by the cutting-edge, limit-defying architecture that is everywhere they look.
From the Burj Khalifa, so tall it could almost pierce the sky, to the exquisitely beautiful Miracle Garden, with 150 million flowers forming a village in full bloom, Dubai’s groundbreaking approach to design is inspiring. The Burj Khalifa features 900 residences alongside a ‘vertical city’ of offices, shops, restaurants and entertainment areas, offering a potentially workable model for compact urban living of the future. During our visit to the Miracle Garden, potentially Dubai’s most ambitious undertaking yet, we ask questions about what is truly possible.
“While traveling through the Middle East, I felt immense gratitude for the opportunity to immerse myself in a region with such a rich cultural and religious history. I visited some of the most spiritual sites in the world, and I never knew how impactful those experiences would be in shaping my spiritual beliefs and identity. The Middle East is also an area rife with conflict, and hearing varying perspectives on complex, large-scale problems firsthand was truly eye-opening.” – Alex
