International Media Production Zone


Location: Dubai, UAE

Service: Urban Design

项目地点:阿联酋 迪拜



Dubai’s liberal attitude and openness to new ideas and technologies has been a great advantage to its economy, as it has become an enclave of innovative and enterprise in the region. Dubai’s leadership has deliberately put in place the regulatory mechanisms and economic incentives to attract an educated international labour force and offer a competitive environment for business. This strategy combined with a receptive marketplace, has enabled the Emirate to become a specialized centre for media production within the region.

IMPZ is the free zone covering 5 sq. km that combines the logistical and business needs of printing and publishing houses with regards to books, videos, television, etc, with shared support facilities such as a media centre, an electronic communications node, workshops, studios, libraries and an amphitheater. There are also living accommodation for the many types of workers, and entertainments and recreation facilities to suit their daily needs. IMPZ is a success as by clustering related industries in one location, it benefits from lowered logistics and transportation costs and joint approaches to product development and marketing. Furthermore, by breaking away from the traditional grid forms of industrial park, IMPZ offers an attractive living and working space that is conducive to innovation and knowledge spill-overs.
