This project was a design competition for a large site adjacent to the airport, for which Esquisse were selected as the winning scheme. The project included a large civic component of a high-tech energy park, resorts, residential apartments and villas, retail promenades, a water park, a convention centre, and a series of water gardens representing various garden typologies from around the world.
