The Heart of Europe in Dubai will be home to the world’s first climate controlled streets.
Areas of the islands will use state-of-the-art technology from Germany and the outdoor climate boulevard has been designed by Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute, one of the world’s leading environmental science research organisations who have been developing this technology since 2009.
How is it possible in The Middle East?
The system works by redirecting return air from buildings and hotels to air vents lining the streets. Water will then be filtered from the condensation pipe to produce the effect of rain. Instead of blowing cold air on our visitors to bring the temperature down from 50 to 27 degrees in the summer we will use rain and snow. As cold air is heavier than hot air, this will enable people to walk outdoors all-year-round.
This exciting concept has not been seen in Dubai before and our guests will be able to experience true European seasonal weather at The Heart of Europe!
