This mall will offer, on an unprecedented scale, a mix of retail, culture and
leisure around a defining theme: the middle east, its diversity, its urban experiences and its cultures.
we propose to integrate berbara mall as the natural center of a new leisure district.
We propose an urban form that combines density with open landscape,
exploring the urban and green potentials of the site at once. we propose
a commercial city that becomes a gathering point for the surrounding
neighborhoods– a new kind of commercial center that is blended into the
urban texture, and includes rather than excludes the surrounding environment.
The programs of berbara mall are organized along an external/internal staircase promenade with a mix of retail, entertainment and cultural programs on both sides. The promenade forms a continuous loop travelling through the new neighborhood.
