From Nad Al Sheba to Al Khawaneej: Dubai’s roundabouts bloom with artistic inspiration.

Dubai Municipality has completed the beautification of four prominent roundabouts in the emirate: Al Raqa, Nad Al Sheba, Nad Al Hamar, and Al Khawaneej roundabouts. This initiative is part of the ‘Art in Public Spaces’ strategy, which aims to transform Dubai into an open, universally accessible art destination. The project is one of several undertaken by the municipality to enhance the aesthetic appeal of public spaces through artistic designs.

The new designs draw inspiration from the names and characteristics of the respective areas. For example, the Al Warqa Roundabout features a central structure adorned with intricate leaf bird designs, reflecting the area’s name which translates to “leaf.” The Nad Al Hamar Roundabout design resembles rose petals, inspired by the contours of nearby red dunes. The Nad Al Sheba Roundabout takes its concept from the term “NAD,” symbolizing elevated earthy hills in the region. The Al Khawaneej Roundabout is inspired by a freshwater well known as Al Khawaneej, showcasing a farm reflecting the desert agricultural heritage of the local inhabitants.

As part of the beautification efforts, various flowers and shrubs, including Sesuvium, Pennisetum, Bougainvillea, Ruellia, and seasonal flowers, have been planted across these roundabouts. Additionally, Dubai Municipality has carried out works throughout the emirate, including planting flowers along main streets, roads, and beautifying neighborhood roundabouts.
