From the Architects:
The focus of the city is the Shams leisure park. Axes radiating like rays of light, spreading across the city, determine the underlying urban pattern. Urban sector are created, based on the relationships between the functional zones of the city, whilst maintaining flexibility for future growth. The urban center is defined by two major north-south roads, and contains the municipal, business, residential, sports, healthcare, university and Shams Park sectors. From this centre the light-industrial and villa sectors are located in independent zones, like islands. These areas are connected by roads and a variety of landscaped and water parks.
