Foster and Partners designs Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation DIDI. Situated in Dubai’s Design District, the Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation, aims to create an immersive creative setting, inspired by the school’s educational programme ( Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT and Parsons the New School, both of whom partnered with DIDI to build the curricular base).
"Dubai is emerging as a global hub for the design and construction industry, exemplified by the varied scope and breadth of our projects in the region. We have been heavily involved in a number of projects over the past two decades, from the Index Tower that opened in 2011, to presently working on the Dubai Design District Creative Community and Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation (DIDI); office developments such as ICD Brookfield Place and the new Mobility Pavilion for the Expo 2020. The opening of our new office in the city reflects our commitment and belief in Dubai as a centre for design and innovation." Gerard Evenden, Senior Executive Partner
