Jumeirah Himalayas HotelThis property opened in March 2011 under the direction of Arata Isozaki, the mind behind the design of Barcelona’s Olympic Stadium and the Los Angeles MOCA. The hotel’s shape represents the ancient Chinese ritual object called yu cong. The outer square symbolizes the earth, the inner circle heaven, and the cylindrical atrium a connecting passageway. Drawing on Piet Mondrian’s neoplasticism movement, the facade mixes bold primary colors and rectangular shapes, while interiors were styled by KCA International, whose portfolio also includes the Burj al Arab in Dubai. Room design veers toward contemporary Chinese.
