Saadiyat Construction Village

Much has been written about the poor housing conditions suffered by migrant workers within the UAE. This project was a genuine effort to provide a better class of accommodation and the workers responded by embracing their new environment turning it into a genuine community.

The challenge was to cope with the wide diversity of languages & dialects spoken by the residents. The solution was to design a suite of easily understood supergraphic pictograms that were accessible to all.
