DUBAI 2100 Ideas Competition by Creathlon Competitions

We present a unique ideas competition for students and professionals with an ambitious theme and approach.

Dubai has emerged as a prime example of human ingenuity and determination to transform a once harsh desert into a modern metropolis, attracting millions of people worldwide through its rapid development, businesses, and tourism.
Its contemporary high-rise architecture, comprising glass, steel, and concrete, has set new benchmarks in urban design and architecture, earning global recognition for its world-record-breaking developments.

The city is renowned for its luxurious lifestyle, safety, and ambitious architectural and urban developments like the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, The Atlantis Hotel, The Palm, Dubai Mall, and many others. The Dubai Frame, Museum of the Future, and Expo 2020 are recent developments that have strengthened Dubai’s reputation as a city that always strives for the impossible.

Dubai’s growth in architecture is largely due to the discovery of fossil fuels and the global market’s trade opportunities. However, Dubai is now looking to transform into a sustainable and distinctive city, breaking away from its current economic model.
Dubai is committed to promoting sustainability, innovation, and inclusivity, investing in sustainable infrastructure, technologies, and green transportation. It has become a leader in smart cities, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technology, attracting innovative and entrepreneurial minds from around the world.

Dubai is also committed to promoting social cohesion and tolerance, home to people from over 200 different nationalities. It is creating a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all, attracting and retaining top talent from around the world, ensuring that it remains a beacon of hope and progress for the region.

As Dubai looks to the future, it is seeking to transform into a sustainable and vibrant urban landscape that expresses its local culture and its relationship with a global population. The competition invites participants to share their ideas on what kind of radical and innovative developments could ensure Dubai remains at the forefront of humankind and become a world-leading sustainable city.

Explore the potential for Dubai to become a global leader in addressing climate change, conserving natural resources, and promoting a circular economy, all while maintaining its status as a hub for business, tourism, and innovation. Your ideas hold the power to shape the cities of tomorrow and inspire the world.

What is your vision for Dubai in the 22nd century?
