This is an especially nice piece of architecture MadeWithBalloons™ at Al Ghurair Centre in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates built by Balloon artist Micha de Haan and his team.

The pictures you see here (above and below) tell the story. You also have the option to select a picture here in order to go to Micha's original version.

I want to extend my hearty congratulations to Micha de Hann.

  • It takes a great deal of planning and preparation as well as on site adjustments to produce something of this scale and precision.
  • Such architectural endeavors do not allow for many of the "fake it" adjustments that are normal in more free form sculptures.
  • The project appears to have been produced with the very minimum of rigid hardware.
  • The entrance treatment appears to structurally reinforce as well as define and decorate the entrance.
  • The high and low "peep holes" (windows) give a fun way for adults and children outside to see what is happening inside.
  • The white "dots" outside and black & colored "dots" inside serve well to fill cracks, reinforce the structure and add visual texture and variation between the inside and outside of the structure.
  • The gold dome is a dramatic and beautiful crown to this fine piece of architecture MadeWithBalloons™.
