d3 is a design district that nurtures emerging local talent and provides a home for the region’s creative thinkers
Dubai Design District (d3) has been developed through careful consultation with the design community to provide a creative ecosystem that surpasses the expectations of a typical creative neighbourhood. d3 forges the inspiring, authentic, and relevant ideas shaping Dubai’s future as a leading destination of design, art, and culture. It has its own beating heart, its own spirit and its own very personal style.
d3 is home to the region’s growing community of creative thinkers. It is being built as part of the Dubai Plan 2021 using the Smart City principles which offer digital connectivity to create an innovation-led economy.
d3 aims to engage, inspire and enable emerging talent, and educate the next generation about the power and importance of all forms of design. It also provides a platform to showcase Middle Eastern creative talent to a larger, global audience.
This is a place where creatives can live, work and play. Where aspiring designers can cut their teeth and learn their trade; where local talent can work alongside international design, art and fashion houses. It is, at its heart, a place where creative minds can come together to realise their dreams.
