Saadiyat Island is a natural island and a tourism-cultural project for nature and Emirati heritage and culture that is located in Abu Dhab. The project is located in a large, low-lying island, 500 metres off the coast of Abu Dhabi island. A mixed commercial, residential, and leisure project is currently under construction on the island. When completed, Saadiyat Island is expected to become Abu Dhabi’s cultural centre, mostly for the Island’s Cultural District that is expected to include eight museums.
I had been part of the Saadiyat Island story since 2006 and produced a large portfolio for various entities developing this new centre of Abu Dhabi. Interestingly enough this mangrove seedling represents the beginning of this journey during my first assignment in Oct 2006.
