Impressions from INDEX Exhibition 2011, Dubai

Dubai's INDEX Exhibition, as seen by Architonic

In its 21st edition, Dubai’s INDEX Exhibition gave us an impression that the financial crisis of 2008, which unexpectedly but severely affected the Middle Eastern emirate, seems to be a thing of the past and that Dubai is on the road to recovery on a less speculative and more realistic level. Located on the emirate’s northern coastline, the glittering, glass-cladded Dubai City is itself an ultimate, extravagant showcase of emirate’s financial power and sky-high ambitions, with both architecture and interior design being the prime examples of this particular penchant for infinite luxury.

 

First launched in 1990, INDEX is the only important fair in the Middle East, serving as a window and giving an outlook on the increasingly important markets such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Bahrain and the booming Saudi Arabia. With this image gallery, we present our photographic account of the omnipresent opulence and eclecticism of the show. Enjoy!
