A city icon is a combination of the uniquely fantastic with the technologically extraordinary; the genesis for a dream in the city that embodies the spirit of its time.

THE CLOUD-NK&AH-22

Conceptually, the Cloud of Dubai has already captured imaginations all over the globe, and now, as it moves into Phase II of its development with Hapsitus and Arup, new aesthetic and engineering territories are being explored.
