The design is informed by a studied understanding of how green spaces in Dubai function differently in the daytime and at night. Given the temperature fluctuations, night hours provoke a different level of social interaction and attract a different group of visitors. By day, the comfort of an air-conditioned home, office or shopping precinct is appealing. At night, however, the outdoors really come alive. To capitalise on this, Central Park features an integrated lighting scheme which transforms the park into a nightscape of adventure and intrigue.
