Fatima Al Suwaidi, Architectural engineering Graduate and Master's student, won the Second Prize out of more than 30 participants in the Grounds of Hope competition by +971 Architects
A memorial designed to pay tribute and respect to the life's lost due to the covid-19 virus in the UAE.
The design concept is emphasized through the vibrantly colored structure that catches each and everyone's attention, the way the pandemic did.
The path follows the concept of the curve vertically and horizontally; translating the experience of the different phases of the pandemic. Simultaneously, the installation tackles the concept of being "alone together" through void architecture, as well as spreading hope and solidarity.
