The city of Dubai is the most populous in the United Arab Emirates, and the second-largest emirate by territorial size. Though it is a popular tourist spot, many are deterred from visiting due to the city's scorching heat, with temperatures reaching 45 degrees Celsius in the summer.

UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed confirmed plans for the world's first temperature-controlled city, named 'Mall of the World,' in early July. The city will be made “to enhance Dubai's tourist infrastructure as soon as possible,” he said.

The needs of visitors and residents of the Gulf state will be catered for in the 48 million square foot area – no matter what the outdoor conditions happen to be at the time.

To control its climate, the area will be covered by a single glass dome, which will be open during the winter months.

According to Dubai Holding, "Tourists will be able to enjoy a week-long stay without the need to leave the City or use a car. The 7 km long promenades connecting all facilities will be covered during the summer and open during the winter, ensuring pleasant temperatures throughout the year."

The project will feature the world’s largest mall and indoor park, as well as a theater area and wellness resorts. It will have the capacity to host over 180 million visitors annually.

The shopping area will be connected to 100 hotels and serviced apartment buildings, with a temperature-controlled covered street network between them.

There will also be a "cultural district," modeled on London's West End and New York's Broadway theaters, and a "celebration walk" designed in the style of La Rambla in Barcelona. “Seven-star wedding halls and services” will be available for those who fancy tying the knot while avoiding the heat.

The chief executive officer of Dubai Holding, Ahmad Bin Byat, said "The project will follow the green and environmentally friendly guidelines of the Smart Dubai model. It will be built using state-of-the-art technology to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint, ensuring high levels of environmental sustainability and operational efficiency.”
