WET was commissioned by Emaar Properties to design a range of water features that would make the Burj Dubai property a standout, celebrating the multi-use tower as a ‘must-see’ destination.

The attraction’s innovative use of projected light allows for the fountain to be visible from more than 20 miles away.

“Water serves as a unifying element throughout the development,” said WET CEO Mark Fuller. “As water’s advocate, we’ve unleashed the kinetic energy of this element to bring people of all ages and all backgrounds together to relish in the stunning fountain performances.”

Situated prominently in front of the world’s tallest manmade structure, Dubai Tower, The Dubai Fountain is a 32-acre lake and is the largest choreographed fountain in the world.

Five rings of high-powered water jets span the length of the lake ensuring that every vantage point around the perimeter is an exceptional one.
