Case Studies
Dubai Future Foundation “Accelerators Space”
Case Study
How might we create a space that is built on a holistic experience and is never underutilized?

The Dubai Future Accelerators space hosts startups in cooperation with the government and private sector entities. With the right interventions, and by utilizing the strengths of the existing design, we set out to design an exploration and production space that is never underutilized. Out of the 80 hours of field research, a scenario-based layout system that enables different modes of interactions emerged.

Design Gov
Case Study
How might we ignite the power of human-centered design and creative leadership within the UAE government by building creative capabilities and establishing new creative roles?

In 2019, ATÖLYE joined kyu Collective members IDEO and Palmwood to design a transformative learning journey for the government of the UAE with the project “Design Gov.” The project addressed the nation’s goal of transforming towards a human-centered approach by empowering future leaders, aiming to embed creative mindsets and skills into the ways government officials think and work—enabling them to imagine and co-create meaningful solutions together with the people they serve.
