The Dubai Mall, completed in 2008, is currently the world’s largest mall and one of the largest structures in the world. The Dubai Mall: Sand to Spectacle documents the design process of Singapore-based DP Architects as it realised a building the size of a city in just over four years from sketch to construction. The authors perform an in-dept analysis of the historical, architectural, culture and physical forces of play in the building’s design, and supplement the text with a unique comparative study of Dubai and Singapore to describe The Dubai Mall as a product of both local and global influences.
