UAE-based developer @aradaliving has revealed the full masterplan of its latest leisure and entertainment project in Sharjah at this year's Cityscape in Dubai, designed by @zahahadidarchitects, who won the global competition earlier this year. Set at 1.9 million feet (over 25 football fields in size), the development is defined by its lush green spaces, water features, as well as ZHA's futuristic concept that reflects the first moment a water droplet strikes the earth's surface.
