Museum of Vancouver: Maraya Project: The Seawalls of Vancouver & Dubai


Maraya is an art project that looks at the relationship between urban waterfronts in Vancouver and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Through photography, video, public art, public programmes and an interactive online platform, new forms of urban living pioneered in both countries are explored, showing how we are connected in ways that are both familiar and surprising.

Maraya - from the Arabic m'raya for "mirror" or "reflection" - connects the glass and steel residential towers that line the seawall walkways of Emaar's Dubai Marina and Concord Pacific Place along False Creek, looking at these two cities that are leaders of 21st century urbanism.
