DA­MAC RE­VEALS PLANS TO BUILD A MAN­MADE RAIN­FOR­EST IN DUBAI

Ekaruna - - News Round Up -

As part of Da­mac’s Akoya Oxy­gen pro­ject, Dubai is set to welcome its very own man-made rain­for­est. It will be housed un­der­neath a dome and will be home to a for­est canopy zip wire ride, rock climb­ing walls, steam baths and pool spas. Ziad El Chaar, the firm’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, told Con­struc­tion Week Online, “Dubai is known around the world for at­tract­ing the big­gest and best and the Dubai Rain­for­est joins that list of unique at­trac­tions which will sup­port the growth of the city,” be­fore adding, “the Dubai Rain­for­est will be a trop­i­cal won­der­land, where tourists, res­i­dents and school groups can im­merse them­selves in and in­spire a new gen­er­a­tion.”

The new ad­di­tion is ex­pected to recre­ate the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment that can be found in the heart of the deep­est rain­forests, which cov­ers 6% of the earth’s sur­face.
