HKA | Hermann Kamte & Associates

HKA | Hermann Kamte & Associates unveals its proposal for an iconic water park in the Middle East named Fine Flower—Dubai Heart. The design intends to break the record for the largest iconic leisure park in the world, the tallest water slider, and the largest man-made waterfall building.

Yaoundé, Cameroun, 30-10-2018 - 

In 2017, HKA | Hermann Kamte & Associates was invited and selected to an international restricted competition by The Dubai Municipality to reinvent the City Waterfront by proposing an entertainment centre which could be the new iconic place of the city. The project is directed by the following architects: Hermann Kamte (Creative Director), Ange Djoke (Architect), and Joseph Ndi (Architect & Urban Planner). The architectural concept seeks to play a leading role in tourism attractions, sports, and healthy social life in Dubai. 

 

Dubai is representing culture across the globe aside its position as a business centre. People are travelling to Dubai from across the world to discover technology and to observe architectural designs. Fine Flower—Dubai Heart is planned to be the largest leisure park in the city and in the world. To be the most complete water park in the world, the project is dealing with the relationship between Architecture and Nature. The design has identified the need to explore the connection between humans and three main elements; Water, Earth, and Air. The project is going to hold the record for the world’s tallest artificial waterfall.

 

The challenge consists to create a space that will provide a leisure atmosphere with respect for the environments. Fine Flower—Dubai Heart has a heart-shaped design surrounding the towers. The project is inspired by the shape of a flower, a natural element which needs water, air, and earth to grow.

 

The design is addressed to the young, the old as well as families who want to relax and share unforgettable moments in the Middle East. The site provides a gathering point for practising sports and water activities. Furthermore, for visitors the project utilizes different methods to educate, excite, and entertain. Consideration is given to the advanced high technology facilities.

 

Fine Flower—Dubai Heart is a small island divided into several elements to encompass the different activities such as the main step heart-shaped building, tall water slides and towers, water activities plaza, sports activity areas, children water zone and water playground, cafes & restaurants, gift shop and front shops zone, facility building for lockers, showers and toilets, roof shops and activities, a panoramic restaurant tower, visitors service facilities (ticketing, information), front gate security & administration facilities, sea sand beach areas, water jogging walkways, food service areas, open theatre plaza services, outdoor exhibit support facilities, the ability to insert marina within the project, museums, etc.

 

The project wants to increase the awareness of Dubai to the Global audience and to attract more tourists.
