Fasht Al Adhem
Creating the Green-Tech Community of Tomorrow, Today
Fasht Al Adhem is located along the Bahrain – Qatar Causeway, a shallow seabed covering an area of about 13,000 ha and spanning across more than 20 km east –west from the Bahrain mainland. With its strategic location, Fasht Al Adhem will be an Eastern gateway to Bahrain, developing into an iconic welcoming gesture that will greet the visitors arriving from Qatar.
DPA’s concept master plan is structured around the vision of “Green-Tech Community of Tomorrow.” Envisioning Fasht Al Adhem as the main industrial zone of Bahrain, while orienting it towards the future industrial demands which will be focused on technology and innovation, DPA’s design intent sought to galvanise a focus on pioneering a circular economy and utilizing green technology that will contribute to decarbonization efforts. To support the growth and development of future industries, the masterplan also considers the inclusion of a liveable, self-sustaining community that takes advantage of Fasht Al Adhem’s extensive water frontage to create a liveable and attractive city for its residents to live, work, play and learn in.
The design of Fasht Al Adhem’s Masterplan demonstrates a sensitivity to concerns of sustainability, well-being and technological integration, all key tenets of DPA’s design consideration.
