This project promises to satisfy the needs of an architect looking for varieties of wood for a project, or someone searching for ideas to build a boat , or a fashion designer searching for the latest trends in smart fabrics.
Rowdha Ali Mohammed AlSakit, CEO of D-Town Enterprises reported to WAM that the concept of D-Town Library has been put together after seeing the void in the global market – connectivity as the heart of knowledge and trade. The concept will connect and bridge the gap between the world’s industries and the consumers. People need to know what is available and how to use it in order to simply start creating, enrich innovation and come up with something new. For all that to happen people need tools, and the library will be an essential tool,he added .
The selection of materials is in process, and the D-Town Library is signing Memorandum of Agreements (MOAs) with the top brands in the world, and they are also in partnership with premium global partners from Pars, New York and Paris.The space,to be opened by the end of the year, will have capacity to display thousands of material samples including all types of innovative and creative minds. The list goes from the ranges of clear glass, to the most innovative tech-materials that can be used across various creative industries such as fashion, or even automotive.The facilities for visitors who want to take an in-depth look at the collection can consult the expert engineers at the library to enquire more about the composition of the materials, usages and manufacturing details.
Active educational workshops on how to integrate new materials on a project will be hosted by the entities who are a part of this upcoming project. We want D-Town Library to become the space where the creative community meets knowledge and innovation. This will be the meeting point for like minded people, a center of knowledge where innovators and creatives can exchange ideas and bring their projects to life, AlSakit added.
