The Cityscape Dubai 2008 awards, themed ‘Design for an Emerging World’, were held on Monday at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Dubai, and saw the three projects tie for first place in the Islamic Architecture category.

Rohan Marwaha, Managing Director, Cityscape, said, “Dubai in many quarters is perhaps better known for its futuristic steel and glass designs. However the projects submitted by Dubai Municipality characterised both Islamic and traditional Arabic architecture, preserving the historical and cultural assets of Dubai.

They were all exceptional in their integrity, we couldn’t separate them.”

In Shindagha, six mosques had been identified for restoration and preservation.
