Known as one of the biggest shopping complex in the world, The Dubai Mall, offers plenty of activities for shopping and recreation for every resident in this emirate. Here’s a documentary that showcases how this giant complex was made. A feature presented by National Geographic, this mall was shaped to become the leisure capital in the Persian Gulf.
With over 1200 shops, the mall is currently a major tourist attraction itself that people flock as it is where the iconic Burj Khalifa, Dubai Aquarium, and Dubai Fountain are situated. But this video is a great way to see the mall in its early stages. With a task to get completed next-to-an-impossible deadline, NatGeo shares how the employees work hard to cater to the said opening time.
NatGeo Documentary of the Dubai Mall
Dubai gave us the world’s largest and most luxurious shopping Centre. Each individual is committed to help build this structure because the reputation of this progressive city is on the line. Play the documentary in the clip below:
Although they’ve missed the dates when to get this mall opened to the public, they did not fail to excite us. The mall’s biggest attractions are the Olympic-sized ice rink, an Indoor aquarium, a Roller Coaster and over 1200 shopping malls.
I could really feel the pressure by watching this video, just imagine how you need to make sure the design of this mall is formed, at the same time, the people in Dubai are also relying on you to finish this project the demands are so high. Every aspect is very important, every detail must be studied, there should be no risks accounted to making this building. In my opinion, the aquarium must be the hardest sector to achieve, basing from the video (15:15), they need to make sure that everything is set in place. The materials for constructing this aquarium are time-consuming, if one piece is wasted, it takes a lot of time to get a new part, the manufacturer would need time to forge the product and it could take half a year to get that imported to this city. The hardest part to consider is the chairman’s decision to make changes on the appearance.
If you ever have the chance to visit Dubai, make sure to go at this city’s majestic mega mall.
