Global Tall Building Studio - Design Workshop in Dubai



Manipal University Dubai School of Design & Architecture is the host of the annual Global Tall Building Studio, a five-day workshop held on their campuses in Dubai, UAE. Manipal Executive Education (MEE) conducts this workshop as way to engage students and encourage them to create innovative designs for high rise structures. Students worked under the guidance of international consultants from the region who are experts in their fields.

The location for the workshop is ideal, with Dubai being home of the tallest man-made building on Earth, the Burj Khalifa. The city has a total of 911 completed high-rises, 88 of which stand taller than 180 metres, and 18 of which surpass the 300 metre mark. The Global Tall Building Studio acts as a platform for the world’s future architects to expand their creative thinking, and conceptualise the iconic and revolutionary skyscrapers of tomorrow.
