In just over three weeks’ time, the Design International team will once again head across the pond to Las Vegas for the ICSC RECon Conference, which is being held 22nd – 25th May. The innovative architecture firm has a vast experience on a global scale, and the conference being the world's largest gathering of shopping centre executives makes it the ideal platform to showcase their award-winning designs.
Held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, RECon is the global convention for the shopping centre industry and provides networking, deal making and educational opportunities for retail real estate professionals from around the world.
Exhibiting at Booth C162L, Design International will be displaying to the 36,000 attendees from around the world, an array of exciting projects from across the globe; including the famous Cleopatra Mall in Egypt, the recently opened Il Centro in Milan, and Avenues Mall Silicon Oasis in Dubai, as well as the winning design for Kingdom City Mall in Jeddah.
Design International’s unique and diverse designs have seen the firm win many awards, as well as having a strong presence worldwide. Perhaps one of the firm’s most iconic projects is Cleopatra Mall, situated in Cairo, Egypt. Designed by Davide Padoa of Design International, Cleopatra Mall has won a number of architectural awards, including “Best Retail Architecture- Worldwide” at the International Property Awards and the Global RLI Award in the “Future Project Award” category. The mall is currently under construction and due to open to the public in 2017. It will feature over 300 shops, a breath-taking outdoor musical fountain, gourmet markets and Egypt’s first dedicated luxury mall inside a shopping centre. Visitors to ICSC RECon will have the opportunity to view the spectacular architectural model at the Design International booth.
Another very exciting project for Design International, which will also be on display at the firm’s booth, is the recently opened Il Centro in Milan. Situated on the former site of Alfa Romeo, one of Italy’s most admired motorcar brands, there now stands the largest shopping centre in Italy. Design International formulated an indoor-outdoor city street concept where single shops were treated like stand-alone buildings (or 'Palazzos') within the shopping centre main building. Visitors at ICSC Recon will be able to learn more about the project, which is considered one of the most innovative pieces of architecture in Europe.
Those wishing to see what is happening in the Middle East will be treated to the iconic design of Dubai’s new landmark; Avenues Mall, Silicon Oasis. The new flagship mall offers a total GLA of 72,621m², and is located at ‘Dubai Silicon Oasis’, a smart city with world class facilities. Perhaps most striking about the design is the five gigantic shape-alike pebbles, inspired by ancient Arabian movements across the desert. Design International will be displaying the project, which has a strong architectural statement, at their booth.
If you would like to meet the team at Design International and learn more about these exciting projects, the firm will be exhibiting at Booth C162L. Meeting requests via Rebecca Mifsud, Head of Marketing and Communications: firstname.lastname@example.org
