Al Wasl Plaza

Al Wasl Plaza is the world's largest 360-degree projection dome built for Dubai Expo 2020. The plaza connects the three Thematic Districts (Sustainability, Mobility and Opportunity) and provides access the UAE Pavilion, Metro Station and concourses.

Al Wasl plaza has a 150-meter diameter and it will be topped by a 65-meter-high domed trellis. It is constructed entirely of steel, around 13.6 kilometers of it. Al Wasl plaza also consists of 252 laser projectors working to splash images onto the surface of the Al Wasl dome. This image is actually viewed not just inside the dome but also outside. It is being designed as a central hub of the explosion.

BIM PROJECT DESCRIPTION

DDDc developed the BIM 3D models for the projectors and the speakers placed in the plaza. The 3D models with the updated ABS data were developed in Revit from the provided drawings.
