The first 50 years of nationhood have seen rapid changes in the uae that few could have imagined. But what’s missed in the renderings of towers or filtered selfies is the country’s canny creation of walkable spaces with a breeze, shade and spaces to socialise or exercise. If you want an image of what’s likely to help the nation succeed in the next half-century, we’d suggest a saunter to Al Bahar at the Corniche in Abu Dhabi. What’s been achieved so far is hard to fathom – what happens next could be even more remarkable. It’s worth a shot, right?
