The American University in Dubai (AUD) and GROHE, leading German manufacturer in sanitary fittings, in collaboration with ALSERKAL Cultural Foundation, have launched the “WATER & SAND” Design Atelier.
During the unique design atelier AUD students will develop a wellness project located in a wind tower house in the vibrant area of Al Bastakiya Dubai, embracing art and culture while using GROHE Spa range.
This challenging project will link local heritage with modern design solutions in respect with the tradition and the historical location.
The workshop is offered to the students of the Department of Interior Design of the School of Architecture, Art and Design of the American University in Dubai (AUD). It will be developed during the Spring 2016 Semester and will involve students enrolled in the Wellness and Spa course – an advanced Interior Design course focusing on wellness centers analysis, planning and design, together with students enrolled in the Interior Design Studio III course.
AUD’s Interior Design Department Chair Albert S. Fakhoury stated:
“We are very pleased to see that the collaboration with GROHE is reaching a new milestone: thanks to the tremendous efforts of the department – particularly Prof. Lambri’s contribution – Wellness and Spa is officially offered as a professional elective course and has become part of the new “Emphasis in Hospitality Design” that we are developing within our program.”
The Water & SAND Design Atelier articulated program, including GROHE ONE-DAY WORKSHOP at AUD, will lead to a Grand Finale event where the winning team will be awarded.
